Amazon will reportedly show off a smartphone at its press event tomorrow, according to The Verge.

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. But at this point we would expect it to run a forked version of Android 4.0 as the leaked Kindle Fires seem to do, and to include Nokia Maps as the location solution - forking Android means Amazon can't use Google Maps, and Nokia spoke today of adding a "major" mapping partner at its own Windows Phone event.

Amazon is also expected to announce a larger Kindle Fire tablet to compete with the iPad.

Too bad it's a galaxy nexus and they're using it as an example. Glasses would suit you.

Thats stupid to announce any products before an iPhone..No1 cares. I just dont understand why anybody use another phone besides an iPhone ? Are these people stupid or cheap ???...what the fuck is wrong with people ? Why use a different phone? Oh maybe buy1 get 2 Free?

Kids only have iphone coz they dont have money to buy anything else aside from iphone, and for anyone claiming iphone is better than galaxy series they usually have low IQ because they judged the other device without even knowing how it compared side by side in terms of performance. Own both samsung and apple before making useless hate comments.
