Amazon introduces the Fire Phone

Amazon has unveiled Fire Phone, its first smartphone. Fire Phone is the only smartphone with Dynamic Perspective and Firefly, two new breakthrough technologies that allow you to see and interact with the world through a whole new lens.

Dynamic Perspective uses a new sensor system to respond to the way you hold, view, and move Fire Phone, enabling experiences not possible on other smartphones. Firefly quickly recognizes things in the real world—movies, music, and millions of products—allowing users to make purchases at Amazon.com.


Unveiled by CEO Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s very first smartphone features a rubberized exterior and aluminum buttons in conjunction with a 4.7″ Gorilla Glass display and HD screen. Powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz processor, Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB of RAM, the phone sees the inclusion of a front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera along with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera equipped with a f/2.0 lens and optical image stabilization. Amazon has also promised unlimited cloud storage for photos.


Fire Phone ships on July 25 and is available exclusively on AT&T. Starting today, customers can pre-order Fire Phone at www.amazon.com/Fire-Phone, www.att.com and in AT&T retail in US. Fire Phone with 32GB of storage is available for USD 199 with a two-year contract. Fire Phone is also available with 64GB for USD 299 with a two-year contract or starting at USD 31.25/month from AT&T on Next 18.
