    Ugh! What horrible grammar and spelling! Yuga, did you really write this?!?

      I don’t see anything wrong with the grammar. Are you arguing because it’s simple and understandable?

    • Justin

      @Patrick: You’re seeing version 2 of the article right now. Yuga obviously read my comment and corrected it.

  2. Jarren watch the official video of amazon fire phone… i love it, wish this phone will ship here in the philippine.

    i bet the NSA has a version that can identify hundreds of faces when scanning a crowd…

  5. This won’t do since it excludes Google’s Ecosystem for now (i.e.PLAYSTORE and APPS)

    • Amazon’s Ecosystem of over 200K (Android) Apps is not too bad. Obviously the phone is geared toward promoting Amazon Store and not Google, hence, the absence of Google Playstore.
      A lot of people are saying that this phone will not sell because of its high price point. Amazon did not show any great confidence in this phone by launching it only in America, and with just one Tel. Carrier. Maybe it’s a sale strategy but it’s not a good one IMO.

  6. I bet this smartphone will fail XD
