    Although we are still scratching our head as to why Amazon would choose to use the gimmick of 3D in their upcoming Android-based smartphone, we aren't surprised that they want to bring a smartphone to market. It makes perfect sense for the mega-e-tailer to offer products which draw more customers into their ecosystem. For years we have heard rumors of an Amazon smartphone, and now we might just have the first pics of a real device from the company.

    The above pic (and the others included in the thread below) are reportedly leaked images of the Amazon 3D smartphone which might come to market later this year. These images include a protective shell around the device (perhaps to hide its final design when pics like this are potentially leaked). It's important to note that the source of these photos indicated this is a prototype, so it's possible the final device might look different. On top of the included pics, several of the rumored specs have "supposedly" been confirmed. Here's the breakdown,

    • Unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
    • 2GB of RAM
    • A heavily customized version of Google’s Android operating system - just like the OS found on the Kindle Fire products
    • Display of 4.7 inches 720p HD
    • Custom 3D capabilities - with 6 cameras - four of which are positioned in the corners of the device and are low-power infrared
    • 13MP main rear camera
    • First of at least two handsets being developed by Amazon
    Apparently Amazon doesn't think 3D will be a gimmick with their device. They are developing it to have practical applications. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    If all of this turns out to be true, Amazon will definitely have a unique product for the smartphone world. What do you think of this 3D concept?

    Thanks for the update. I really don't care about the 3D aspect (even though that seems to be their key selling point), but am curious to see one & try it out in person when they are available. I love the Kindle Fire HD tablets, my wife and I both have one. I'm not sure if I'll like that OS on a phone, but curious to see how it works & check out the UI.

    That looks like a hard case on another phone.

    I read this morning that Amazon is going to let AT&T carry their new phone exclusively. Bummer for me...I was hoping to check it out!
