Not coming this year


In a recent interview with Allthingsd.com, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos finally dismissed rumours of a possible Amazon smartphone.

When asked about the possibility of extending Amazon’s product roadmap to new devices, Bezos said that he could not talk about the future roadmap, but that no changes should be expected this year. However, he hinted that new devices are in the pipeline for next year, but that’s about it.
