    According to industry intel, Amazon may be poised to launch their 3D Android-based smartphone as soon as June 18th. This rumor has a solid basis to back it up as well. Amazon themselves just released a teaser trailer in which users are introduced to the device. We don't get to see what they are looking at, but their surprised and impressed reactions suggest we might just be surprised by how cool Amazon's concept really turns out to be. In fact, the folks in the video even suggest that the features aren't just for show, but might actually be extra useful as well.

    Luckily, further insider info suggests this new "wow" tech comes form Omron's Okao Vision face-sensing system. Here's a quote describing it,

    It certainly appears that Amazon might be the Dark Horse of 2014 if they can really pull off something impressive and useful. We are definitely intrigued and will be watching out for any further hints of the June 18th release date.

    New players are getting into the game. Mobile phones must be very profitable.

    What was that phone on Sprint...the Evo 3D or something like that? It was a gimmick then, my bet its a gimmick now too.
