It wasn’t going to be long until a 3D smartphone hit the shelves and it seems Amazon has dibs on being first.
Amazon has just announced a new Kindle Fire 3D smartphone which is expected to be released in June of this year.
The phone has the ability to display 3D images without the need for 3D glasses and sources have descried the images appearing similar to a hologram.
While no further design specifications or prices have been revealed, it seems that Amazon will be showcases early prototypes within the next few months.
Amazon has been branching out more and more into the tech market, releasing Amazon Fire TV which was designed to compete with Apple TV and the Roku.
They have also just recently lowered their cloud software storage prices to compete heavily with Google and Dropbox and are working on drone technology to make deliveries within 30 minutes- although there is still a long way to go before this technology is mainstream.
If that wasn’t enough, Amazon has also started the new “Dash” service which allows users to purchase groceries and other fresh items and have them delivered the next morning. Although availability for the service is limited, Amazon is looking to expand it to other cities and states later in the year.
It seems that Amazon is proving that it is far more than just an e-commerce site.
