Amazon to Ship Smartphone

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon plans to ship a smartphone in the second half of this year.

The company hopes to announce the phone by the end of June and start shipping by the end of September, according to the report.

The phone will be able to simulate 3D or even a hologram without special glasses, using retina-tracking technology and four front-facing cameras or sensors.

The news is based on "people briefed on the company's plans."
