Default Amazon phone

Rumors has it that amazon is working on a phone. Lets have fun speculating it.

4.25" kindle fire style. No expandable memory. Encrypted bootloader. Cheap build possibly undercutting the nexus in pricing. And no Google play store.

I moved this to the android lounge

Shoot me a pm if you think that was a mistake.

I'd be interested in seeing what amazon offers. I wouldnt buy it but Competition is good for the consumers.

This type isn't. FB is rumored to be looking into its own phone also. Samsung is trying Tizen

Each one is trying to lock you into its services specifically.

Suppose you have an Amazon device and Newegg is selling what you want. You could be blocked from Newegg on the Amazon device.

All some people see is the price and not the consequences. I look for price, too, but if I don't agree with any caveats included in the price, I'll pay more and not lock myself in.
