    We haven't heard any new intel on the Amazon Android smartphone since September, but that changed as of today. DigiTimes reports that the oft-rumored mythical Amazon Android smartphone will go into mass production toward the end of Q2 this year. It will likely launch in the beginning of the following quarter. This jives with our previous intel from last year.

    The phone will be a 4.7-inch device, but no other details were shared. Here's what DigiTimes had to say,

    What do you guys think? If this device has decent power and battery life, could it be a contender for your dollars? Wanna bet that many of our wives and girlfriends will be interested in it?

    Phablets are the crossover cars of the hand held device world.

    And both need to die.

    Unless they made this phone extremely cheap, off-contract and unlocked so you can take it to T-Mobile and use it on one of their new pre-paid plans, I see no incentive to get one.

    The pic is just a mockup. Someone shrank the Kindle Fire and Photoshopped it onto a hand. We just wanted to have something as a pic. :)
