Kindle_Phone

We’ve seen plenty of outdated, mid-range devices get offered for free on carrier sites, but seeing the Kindle Phone without a price tag would certainly be new to us. Reports suggest that the offering would not be the conventional “free phone” (+ new 2-year contract) deal, but customers could be required to sign up to a membership of Amazon Prime. A source has stated that “Amazon wants the device to be free whether or not people sign up for a new wireless plan at the same time.” Amazon could be dealing with carriers in the near future about working something out, however it’s likely that Amazon will offer the device on their site as well.
