Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) To Release Smartphone With 3D Screen

Tech rumors are considerably more fun to report than it is to put your name on a report that later turns out to be egregiously false. That said, thanks to the reporting of The Wall Street Journal today, I’m comfortable saying that Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is presently developing two smart phones. One of these two phones will be providing users with a 3-D screen that doesn’t require glasses to be viewed. Additionally, it will allow users to access their phones without more than their retinas. Or so the story goes.

Since Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) first introduced the Kindle Fire tablet rumors began swirling about the Internet regarding its first phone. That’s just how these things work. It’s quite possible that this phone will never see the light of day due to “performance, financial, or other concerns,” but it is fun to speculate.

Amazon Device Development

This rumored smartphone is a just a part of a project known as the “Alphabet Projects,” Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is reportedly working on a number of devices that apparently would broaden the Kindle line for the company including an audio streaming device, a branded box for TV streaming and others.

A number of magazines, newspapers, and websites were rebuffed by Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) spokespeople who said that it is not the Seattle-based company’s policy to comment on rumors.

The WSJ’s actual report, so I’m not accused of propagating rumors read the following…..

One of the devices is a high-end smartphone featuring a screen that allows for 3-D images without glasses, these people said. Using retina-tracking technology, images on the smartphone would seem to float above the screen like a hologram and appear three-dimensional at all angles, they said. Users may be able to navigate through content using just their eyes, two of the people said.

Once again, this is little more than speculation based on the reporting of a single media outlet. This single media outlet, however, has prompted a number of people myself included, to cover this breaking news. Perhaps nothing will ever come of this. Which means I’ve wasted my time writing this, you’ve wasted time reading it, and tomorrow is another day.
