Amazon are shortly going to be releasing their very first entry in the mobile phone market, currently known as just the “Amazon Phone” rumours are starting to circulate that this phone may well have a killer feature.
The phone will predictably be running Amazon’s very own flavour of the popular Android operating system. The Amazon OS features tight integration into the Amazon services and stores.
Although it would be unbelievably cool, unfortunately content on the phone will not be ‘projected’ into the air like the holographic clips in the movies such as iRobot. The 3D Holographic display will give the illusion of depth of field of the onscreen content.
Its also said to be sporting eye tracking technology developed by a Japanese firm named Omron’s Okao Vision. This feature is also rumoured to be in the up and coming Samsung Galaxy S4.
Initial rumours suggest the the Amazon phone will sport a 4.7inch screen running at just 720p. Although this wont be as sharp a quality as some of the other devices on the market running at 1080p, this will aid the battery life of the device.
The device will have (what has rapidly become the norm’) 2 cameras, a forward facing camera capturing images at 12 mega pixels and a rear facing camera capturing images at 13 mega pixels. Its expected to be running the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and have 2GB of ram built into the device.
Amazon recently released a ‘teaser’ video of the device which you can watch below
On day of release its thought that the device will only be available on the AT&T network, with no news as of yet of a worldwide launch.
The Amazon event in Seattle is due to start at 3.30am AEST (17:30 GMT), and will not be available to stream online. Presumably a keynote video will be released shortly afterwards.
