First eBay... Now Apple?

There is no doubt than Amazon has changed the way we sell online, the way we read, and much more. Now the company is working with an international manufacturing firm to create its own smartphone. The phone is set to rival today’s most popular smartphones.

Is this just a rumor? Signs point to no. The company is currently working with Foxconn International to create the new product. Amazon is currently registering patents to protect itself from possible infringement claims and has hired a new patents director. With this phone still in development, there is little information about pricing or features.

Just as Amazon’s Kindle Fire is a cheaper alternative to the Apple iPad, the smartphone being developed would be a cheaper alternative to the iPhone and the Android.

It will be interesting to see what impact an Amazon smartphone will make on the market.
