Bezos shoots down Amazon phone rumours

Written by Peter Scott

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.

So, there is no Amazon phone, at least not yet. Of course, Bezos could not go into specifics, but it seems the Amazon phone is a no-go for the time being.

The latest Kindle Fire HD tablets are proof that Amazon is taking the hardware side of things very seriously and it simply does not need the risk involved in launching a potential flop-phone. At least not yet.
