Disappointing. I thought they were competing with Google on price after the tablets. Instead this is an expensive android phone without Google services. I'll pass.
Yeah, I was really expecting them to compete on price because I'm not really sure what the hook for this phone is. 3D's a gimmick, I can download Google Goggles and do nearly everything Firefly can, and premium hardware is available other places. If you have all Amazon stuff this is the phone for you I guess but if not, I don't see why it should be.
Not 100% sure if or when it will hit the UK - but looks different enough that I might give it a try.
If it's easy enough to install an aosp ROM maybe it does have a future, but something tells me Amazon have it very locked up.
What would be the point of putting an AOSP ROM on it? Then you would loose all the features that make it stand out and useful vs every other device
$200 on contract? PASS!!!! Better luck next time Amazon.
