Amazon has launched its first smartphone'Fire' and it takes the definition of shopping to a new digital level
Fire seamlessly integrates Amazon's vast digital ecosystem for instant access to over 33 million songs, apps, games, movies, TV shows, books, audiobooks, and magazines, including thousands of exclusives.
"Fire Phone puts everything you love about Amazon in the palm of your handâ€”instant access to Amazon's vast content ecosystem and exclusive features like the Mayday button, ASAP, Second Screen, X-Ray, free unlimited photo storage, and more,â€ said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO, in a company release. "The Firefly button lets you identify printed web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR and bar codes, artwork, and over 100 million items, including songs, movies, TV shows, and productsâ€”and take action in seconds,â€ added Jeff Bezos.
Dynamic Perspective is another breakthrough technology sported by Amazon's Fire. It employs a sensor system to let the user auto-scroll books and long web pages. With immersive apps for e.g. Amazon Shopping, the Dynamic Perspective lets the user peek to instantly see close-up front and back views of a dress.
This launch by Amazon, is a beginning to a lot more that these technologies can do. A lot of advancements are expected in the near future.
