An earlier report from Jessica Lessin claims that Amazon is going to launch a free phone this year. However, after 48 hours of this report, an Amazon spokesman has told Lessin on Sunday that it has no plans to launch a smartphone this year. He also declares that if Amazon will launch its own phone in future, it “would not be free.”
This statement from the online retail giant clears all questions about a free smartphone. But no other details are exposed. Though Lessin asked about the pricing and discount offers attached to Amazon's rumored smartphone, but Amazon spokesman declined to give any further details. It is long rumored that Amazon will launch its own smartphone and it will be cheap like its Kindle. But no such details about the rumored smartphone are yet elaborated.
