Amazon enters the phone market launching its own smart phone, called the Fire phone. The Fire phone is a beautiful device. It’s got a 4.7-inch screen made from aluminum, with rubber casing to make it easy to hold. It has a two year contract and will ship in July 25 and costs $199. It has many exciting features to grab the market.
The phone’s most visible feature is Dynamic Perspective that is its 3D display. The Fire phone has four user-facing infrared cameras that it uses to gauge the location of your face and eyes. In the phone’s Maps app, labels and the map itself are on different layers. The browser and the Kindle reader on the phone can use tilting to control scrolling. It looks like a natural user experience. This feature works in games as well.
Amazon has precisely designed this phone to be great for video, music, and reading. It has features like dual speakers and Dolby surround sound, and tangle-resistant ear buds (with a flat cable). It has all the features of a Kindle e-reader, as well as most of the features of a Fire TV. The phone has a self recognizing feature called Firefly feature to recognize text and objects in the real world like music and TV shows from listening to their audio and many others. The Fire phone has 32 GB of memory and has a good pixel density — 13 megapixels.
The Fire phone comes with 12 months of Prime membership. Existing Prime customers get extensions on their current memberships. It’s available for preorder now.
