The Verge has a picture of a rumored Amazon phone that could be announced at tomorrow's press conference.

Check this video of an Amazon commercial. At 0:34, we see a 10" Kindle Fire in a keyboard dock.

If they can make a phone, then they should make a wifi version and call it the Pocket Fire. We need more competition in the media players. Currently, your two main choices are the Galaxy Player and iPod touch.

A Wi-Fi phone would pretty durn neat.

that's a laptop, not a 10" kindle fire.


p.s. The phone might be named "Kindle Blaze"

I called Amazon CS and asked if I couldn't link my bank account directly to Amazon and they could withdraw money as they see fit.

Their reply: "We will take it under serious consideration".

Nate had a picture of that back on April Fool's day. How bizarre would it be if his April Fool gadget turned out to be a real item. I certainly doubt the 4.3" Mirasol screen will be on it...

Not sure that's the 10".

The same woman in the hammock at 0:42 holding a 7" Kindle Fire

If there is a 10" Kindle Fire, it would be showed clearly in the ad.

The 7" Kindle made several appearances. The Paperwhite too. But for the 10" Kindle, no conclusive proof. You would expect the "flagship" 10" product to be shown clearly no? or at least the same amount as the 7" flagship.

Do you think the tablet with Apollo Moon Landings is a 10" model? It looks like it *could* be. Something else is interesting...the Kindle book shown is a Vook book. It has A/V material but the enhanced part was always only viewable on igadget apps. You think it may finally be viewable on this new Fire?

Thanks to the Verge (they look like 7" tablets to me):
