A report from The Wall Street Journal claims that Amazon’s 3D-capable phone will be unveiled in June, with shipping expected by the end of September. Citing the usual sources who are “familiar with the details,” the e-commerce company has been demonstrating its 3D smartphone to developers in San Francisco and Seattle in recent weeks. The demonstrations require developers to visit heavily-guarded hotel suites just to view the prototypes.
The Amazon 3D smartphone will reported have four front-facing cameras or sensors that would track where the user is gazine. It also offers a 3D viewing experience without having to wear special glasses.
While some say Amazon is going away from its e-commerce expertise by developing its own hardware, one has to look at its Kindle Fire tablet to see the reason behind the madness. A report from ad firm Chitika Insights states that since Christmas of 2013, shares of Kindle Fire grew so significantly that it has eaten away iPad’s dominance, at least in North America.
Amazon has yet to respond as of this writing.
