Amazon 3D Smartphone Rumors

Various sources report that Amazon is working on a 3D smartphone to be released before end of 2013. More or less similarly to LG, Amazon's device is supposed to use "retina-tracking technology" to make images appear to be hovering above the surface of the screen from all angles, without requiring special glasses. So, it is not completely clear if the new phone will have a 3D autostereoscopic screen, or if images will be re-rendered in real time in 2D while following the user's head and eye movements.

Few details have been revealed, except than the new device will support 4G LTE connectivity and will be powered by chips from Qualcomm.

In the same rumor stream, we observed traces of a future Amazon set-top box that can stream Amazon Prime instant video content and of a new Amazon music streaming service.

Meanwhile, in Wall Street...

...Amazon's stock was up by about 1.5% on the day as of publication.
