Amazon is planning to launch a smartphone with 3D capabilities in the autumn. That’s according to ‘people familiar with the matter’, who’ve divulged the inside line to the Wall Street Journal.
The insiders claim the new Amazon phone will come with four front–facing cameras, tracking eye movement to deliver 3D images without users having to don awkward specs every time they check messages or browse Facebook.
Little else is known about the device. Gossip about such plans first leaked two years ago and there was a spate of rumours and insider info last summer, when it was suggested Amazon would have a phone ready for launch alongside its refreshed Kindle line.
Amazon may find that 3D is a hard sell among mainstream consumers. 3D TVs have failed to catch on and 3D channels and services are now seen as after–thoughts.
Just last week, Sky customers vented their fury at not being able to watch The Masters golf in three dimensions.
