Even though the company has denied interest in making an entry into the smartphone space, new details have emerged of Amazon launching a device.
According to a report by The Information, the internal code name for the rumoured smartphone is “Project Aria” and will potentially hit various counties sometime later this year, specifically the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. No indication of Canada being included on the launch, but apparently Amazon is concerned with the lack of content available to users outside the States. This is a similar situation that the Kindle Fire HD experienced in Canada as there are a number of notable omissions, such as video content and cloud services.
While the report didn’t name a manufacturer, HTC was previously tipped to be working with Amazon on launching up to 3 new devices.
