Amazon Kindle phone from HTC coming soon?

HTC-Amazon-Kindle-SmartphoneAn unnamed sources from Taiwan has reported that Primax Electronics has received an order from Amazon for compact camera modules (CCM.) Rumour has it these will be for smartphones hitting the market in the first half of 2014. These smartphones could feature floating point technology, and each phone will be equipped with six CCMs for sensing.

This bit of detail backs up previous rumours that a Kindle smartphone will have multiple front-facing cameras that will determine where the user’s face is located, and render the 3D on screen accordingly. However, the mention of “floating point” technology would indicate that the phone may have some form of motion sensing feature, allowing a user to control the phone without having to touch the screen.

Recently sources have reported Amazon has been working with HTC on three smartphones, and that one of these devices was in an advanced stage of development yet would not be ready to ship until 2014, if at all. Based on previous rumours, the phone will likely have four cameras on the front for the motion sensing/3D aspect, another camera on the front for video calling, and one on the back for taking pictures.
