All gimmicky stuff that very few will use. The more important thing is that the Amazon app ecosystem is very underdeveloped with 1/4 of the apps in the Apple ecosystem.
People can wait to get home and buy stuff on Amazon or somewhere else on their computers. People don't want to be controlled ---- Period. They don't want to have to pay-up for a device so that Amazon can control their buying experience. Especially when Amazon gives people different prices for the same products when they think they can get more money out of them. People don't trust that Amazon will always give them the best price. People want to do a web search first. So.....no, this will be another dud product for Bozos.
And VERY FEW will be buying the Amazon phone at AT & T.
It can only run AMZN apps within the Android ecosystem. Currently they only have 240k phone apps.
Unfortunately for Bozos, he doesn't make much money on commerce and cloud either. He is a genius at running businesses that don't make money.
What a joke.
Apple makes 80% of ALL GLOBAL SMARTPHONE PROFITS. I would say that's in the game, douche-bag.
They have 140 billion overseas. Take 14 billion from that and they now have 126 billion back in the US for acquisitions, share buy-back, R & D and the retirement of debt.
It will be a "sell on the news" in 3 trading days for Amazon. Very high expectations now built into the stock price. Anything less and the stock tanks.
They will pay less than 10% tax to do it and it can be used for anything they wish included buying more shares and retiring debt.
tilting the phone is touching it, moron. And, whatever it is, it will still be in the cruddy Android ecosystem. What person with money wants an "Amazon" phone anyway, LOL!
Amazon will be yet another player in the crowed Android space. They may take share from Samsung and others in Android, but they will be inconsequential to Apple. And, there global distribution platform is currently nonexistent.
Like the Kindle was a game changer? LOL, um.....no. It will be sell the news next weeks for Amazon. The expectations are high for a 3d phone. If they come out with anything less spectacular there will be a massive sell-off in Amazon stock.
no one with money that actually buys stuff with mobile devices will want a cruddy Amazon phone, LOL! No matter what the bells and whistles. And 85% OF ALL GLOBAL MOBILE COMMERCE is done on an iOS device. Can you see an iphone user giving-up the entire Apple ecosystem for a dopey Amazon device, LOL. Not likely.
