The Amazon smartphone will run Android 4.0. The Verge seems to have learned that later today Amazon will release its first smartphone. There have been numerous rumors for a while about such smartphone developed by amazon itself, but the introduction seems not far away.

Later today, the online store had a press conference that the new Kindle will be known as the successor to the Kindle fire. During this meeting the new smartphone will see the light of day.

Little is known about the device, except that it will run on Android 4.0. Most Google services like Google Maps, Store and Play, OS from the Exchange will be demolished by Amazon. This allows the manufacturer the device is relatively inexpensive to its customers, perhaps even around the $200 price level. The Verge believes to have heard that the unit is not finished yet, so if Amazon him today announce it is unlikely that a working will be seen.

“Multiple sources have confirmed to The Verge that Amazon is working on a smartphone that runs a variant of the Kindle Fire’s Android-based operating system, and we’re now hearing that the device will be shown to the press tomorrow.

The phone itself is said to be currently unfinished, so if Amazon does announce it we wouldn’t expect too many details.”

Amazon makes no secret of his strong focus on the mobile channel. Last week was the success of its own app store applauded. "The Kindle Fire was not even a year ago on the market and already there are hundreds of millions of apps and games downloaded."

The hardware of the retailer runs on Android, but Amazon is adapted to requirements. The download store is not Google but Amazon itself. According to The Verge, the smartphone does not work with Google Maps but with Nokia Maps.
