Amazon Fire Phone

Rumor has it, Amazon.com was once a place where you picked up a copy of the new Stephen King thriller and called it a day. Mind you, that’s just a rumor, because we’re struggling to remember a time when the online retailer wasn’t also a tech-making giant. The Amazon Fire Phone only further blurs our memory.

So yeah, the new phone. For a few months people were expecting it, and now it’s here, so let’s cover the core specs first. It’s got a 4.7-inch IPS LCD HD display (1,280×720 resolution), with a quad-core 2.2GHz processor, Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a f/2.0 five element lens, and optical image stabilization.

But what makes it special? For starters, Amazon says Dynamic Perspective will let you experience interactions not possible on other smartphones, letting you tilt, auto-scroll, swivel, and peek to navigate menus and access shortcuts with one hand. With a press of the Firefly button, the phone will recognize anything from email addresses and QR codes, to millions of movies and songs, giving more info about that subject within seconds. The Fire Phone’s Second Screen feature allows you to “fling” any video you’re watching from the phone’s display to an Amazon FireTV, and Mayday instant customer support is also on board, just like with the Kindle Fire HDX tablets. The 32GB model can be had for $199 on contract for AT&T customers only. [Purchase]
