Amazon Unveils New Fire Phone

Amazon is entering the Smartphone Market on July 25th, 2014. Yesterday the company announced the Fire Phone. The Fire Phone’s most intriguing feature is its dynamic perspective. This feature adds a 3D like effect to the smartphone. The Phone also uses an application called firefly to scan items into the phone so they can be purchased or researched. I am surprised that Amazon is entering the smartphone business. They have already entered the tablet market and television┬ámarket with the Fire TV.

The Fire Phone will be sold through AT&T. The 32GB model will be $199 and the 64GB model will be $299. The Fire Phone has a Quad Core Processor and 2GB of ram. It also has a 13 megapixel camera with a 4.7 inch display in 720p. The specifications look impressive and it will be interesting to see how it competes with other smartphones.
