Kizagjo just passed me this interesting article
It talks about how Amazon is trying to build a phone that will be given away. I'm talking free as in no contract. Will this free phone have any strings (non contract) attached to it?
What effect will a free Amazon phone have on manufacturers of high-end phones like Apple and Samsung. Unlike Apple and Samsung, Amazon's reasons for making a phone are different. While Samsung and Apple sell phones for profit, Amazon's reasoning for giving away a phone may be to lock people into Amazon's ecosystem - will you have to buy stuff from Amazon? Where will you get the software from?
Of course before Amazon can do this they also face other challenges like who will build this phone?
If Amazon had a free phone and it didn't suck, would you consider using it or would you pay $200-$300 and stick to your Galaxies and iPhones?
