Amazonian Phone

Next week, on Tuesday, Amazon is expected to launch its phone.

This has been a long-time coming. In January 2013, Amazon was reported to be planning to launch a powerful but cheap Android phone.

At that time the expectation was that Amazon would launch a smartphone costing $100-200 instead of the $600-800 you pay for an Apple or Samsung phone.

It was said that Amazon had signed a deal with Foxconn to build five million smartphones to be launched in the summer of 2013.

The cheap expected price tag is because Amazon has sold its e-readers and tablets at cost price to get people to use its retail services.

Amazon’s record of selling its hardware at cost price may give it a crucial edge over Apple and Samsung in the $340 billion phone market.
