Amazon Phone Changes Everything
Serdar Yegulalp, InformationWeek
Word on the street is that Amazon's developing a smart phone, almost certainly intended as competition against the iPhone. After all, the reports indicate the "AmaPhone" comes courtesy of the same hardware maker who gave us the iPhone--Foxconn. But the one really big question with this phone isn't going to be the hardware or software. It's what carrier Amazon will use, if any. Amazon's plans could disrupt the entire mobile business.
