The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon is developing two new smartphones. One of the two is reportedly a high-end phone that will feature a 3D screen that can track eye movements and will no longer require glasses. The WSJ even says that the images on the said phone will float on the screen like a hologram. The said phone is said to be in development at Amazon's "Lab126" facility in Cuptertino.
Additionally, WSJ reports that a set-top box is also in the works, one that could rival other video streaming boxes out there such as the Apple TV and Roku. Although the news is interesting and exciting at the same time, the publication did not reveal their sources, which leaves us with nothing but a grain of salt in the hand.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
