Later this month, Amazon will start selling its newly unveiled Fire Phone in the US, allowing its buyers to get a completely unique visual experience thanks to its Dynamic Perspective technology. This device is an AT&T-exclusive and can be pre-ordered now at $199 (with a two-year contract) through the retailer’s site.
As was rumored before, the Fire Phone has been equipped with a total of six cameras, four of which are dedicated towards tracking your head movements to deliver a unique 3D perspective on its screen. And there’s an SDK for this feature out as well, so expect other developers to take advantage of it to deliver their own tailored apps for it.
Another highlight-worthy feature of this Amazon product is Firefly. With the press of a button, this phone’s camera can quickly recognize printed web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR codes, bar codes, artwork, movies, music and more to grab information about them. It’s like a highly advanced version of Google Goggles (remember?).
One year of Amazon Prime access will be offered along with this smartphone, aside from dedicated customer service. Moreover, it has also been blessed with free unlimited cloud storage, but only for photographs that are clicked through the Fire Phone. This handset is powered by the Jelly Bean-based Fire OS 3.5.0, granting you access to thousands of Android applications via the Appstore.
