Amazon was rumored to have been tinkering away at a phone. Recently, the news of not one but two phones came out. The first one of these is codenamed “Smith”. It employs 3D in its structure and functioning. Smith has four frontal cameras on all four sides of the mobile. These can keep a record of a user’s head movements and then produce 3D results in the interface. The user base could see objects beyond the edges of the screen

The basic function of the phone is to relate real time objects with products in the Amazon Store so people could buy them. It is a wild card alright. The project looks like an in-house one and it won’t be released this year

As for the second phone, the hearsay regarding it is extreme indeed. That it will be free of cost already points in the direction of a very nominal rate. It doesn’t carry the 3D features of the Smith. And it too will not debut this year. Amazon may be facing staff issues

That is why it has been circulating and rotating staff so that the project may be completed. All this goes on in Amazon’s famous Lab126. Its Kindle Fire tablets are hot property alright and a set-top box is in the experimental stages. Amazon won’t be giving up on electronic goods any time soon

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. 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.
