Amazon To Unveil Kindle Smartphone This Week

Amazon has scheduled a special event to take place this Wednesday in Seattle. It appears that they will be releasing a Kindle smartphone during the event. Amazon posted the video below as a teaser. Like the color Nook tablets, it is believed the phones will be powered by Amazon’s own flavor of Android. Many analysts think this could be a successful move because Amazon could easily market and deliver these phones without a middleman. The same cannot be said of other Android-powered smartphones. This would put Amazon on par with Apple in the smartphone race.
