Amazon Smartphone To Be Reportedly Unveiled Today

While there were many leaks regarding the Kindle Fire refresh there was only a couple of rumors that were indicating a possible smartphone made by Amazon. Some waved them off while others were excited and we tried to speculate on how an Amazon smartphone could change the landscape and Android’s trajectory.

The upcoming event will see an Amazon phone being unveiled, probably, according to recent reports. It will allegedly be showed off to the press at today’s event, running a variation of Android which is also operating the Kindle Fire. The report also mentions the fact that if the device will indeed be presented to the press, it will be in an unfinished form; don’t expect a large number of details but the fact itself that there will probably be a confirmation is enough to build a buzz.

Since it will run a version of Android (forked) similar to the one on the Kindle Fire, it will probably offer Nokia’s mapping solution (in the absence of Google Maps). We’ve heard similar reports previously and Nokia also mentioned, at its Lumia Windows Phone 8 event, that they’re adding a major mapping partner to the list.
