    Here's a bit of news which could end up being a bright light for the ailing HTC company. There are hints that Amazon may work out a partnership with them to produce the oft-rumored Kindle smartphones. Supposedly, Amazon is already in the advanced stages of developing one of three different devices. The report said the following,

    Of course for now, we are very skeptical until we find out something more. Still, could this be a wise move for both of these companies? HTC gets saved from the brink of collapse while Amazon gets a company with a solid infrastructure to build their phones. What do you guys think?

    FAIL! Either HTC is pimping themselves out to try to stay afloat or Amazon is oblivious to HTC's financial issues.

    It'd be like Amazon bringing ice and bottled water to the Titanic after it hit the berg.

    If Amazon is looking at partnering with HTC then they are well aware of any financial issues. If Amazon is behind it then it is unlikely that it will fail.

    Right on OldFart.
    Really guys? You really think Amazon would rush into this blindly? Amazon hasn't made many mistakes. But disagree with Oldfart on his second point... Amazon certainly can make a mistake.
