According to a recent report from Taiwan Economic News, the Amazon phone is real, and Foxconn won an exclusive contract to make the device. The bill of materials is allegedly going to be anywhere between $100 and $200, which frankly doesnít tell us much. The number we want to focus on is 5 million. Thatís supposedly how many smartphones Amazon wants Foxconn wants to make for them in 2013.
When will this so called Amazon phone be announced? The report says somewhere between the second quarter and the third quarter. Put another way, thatís any time between April and September.
I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of AAPL share holders suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.
