Amazon Smartphone in the Works

While most of the buzz around Amazon is that they will produce a larger version of their Kindle Fire (presumably a 10 inch version), Bloomberg’s “people with knowledge of the matter” claim that a smartphone is actually in the works. The rumor centers around a supposed chase for wireless patents so that Amazon won’t have the same problems that other companies like Samsung is having now. There are no details about the device nor a timetable of when it will be released, but we do know that Amazon has partnered up with Foxconn to aid them in the manufacturing process.

What do you guys think about an Amazon manufactured phone? I can see this as a win for consumers as we can never get enough of good and affordable devices.
