Amazon Phone to be announced Today?

Amazon has scheduled a press-event today starting at 10am PDT. It is clear that Amazon will unveil new Kindle Fire tablets and new Kindle eReader. The internet retailer is possibly also revealing its smartphone plans according to sources of The Verge.

Amazon is according to the sources not finished making the Amazon Phone. So it would be just a preview. Amazon has its own forked Android version that runs on the Kindle Fire. The same OS version is likely also be used for the Amazon smartphone. The mapping app is supposed to be coming from Nokia. As a lot of smartphones can be had for free on contract, it is going to be interesting to see how Amazon is topping this. 

My guess is that you get the Amazon Phone without contract for $49.99. Amazon's model for their devices is that they make the money through the content you buy.

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.
