Amazon Fire TV is a bonafide hit and is out-of-stock according to Amazon - The Bamboo powered smartphone running Amazon apps cometh

“We're thrilled with the customer response to Fire TV so far -- we're building more as quickly as we can and we're expecting more inventory next week”

Amazon spokeswoman Kinley Pearsall commenting on Amazon Fire TV being out-of-stock

It’s early days yet, but it appears that the Amazon Fire TV is a bonafide hit according to Amazon as stated in “Amazon: Fire TV sellout must mean we're on fire”, published April 11, 2014 12:38 PM PDT by Joan E. Solsman, CNET News.

The Amazon Fire TVwas launched on Wednesday April 2nd 2014 with much fanfare by Amazon, as this 2-in-1US$99 Streaming Box also threw in a US$40 Game Controller as stated in my blog article entitledAmazon launches Amazon Fire TV Set Top and Gaming Console - Amazon Prime Delight challenges Apple iTV, enflames Cord-Cutter's Nirvana portending Console Gaming Renaissance”.

No stats were given or numbers, save to say that they said the out-of-stock situation was a result of backorders and not supply chain issues i.e. the Amazon Fire TV is so hot, it’s selling like hot bread! Just like the Tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire as stated in my blog article entitled “Amazon launches a pair of Kindle Fire 2 - ACS-Xerox Call Centers in Jamaica ramp up as Kindle Fire begin to Sparkle” and my Geezam blog article entitled “Amazon sells 5.5 million Kindle Fires in Fourth Quarter 2012 – Apple iPad sales drop and plans January Press Event”.

To which I’d reply “like duh-uh”, it must be selling like hot bread at that price, even as hot as the Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Stick, which was selling for US$35 when it launched as stated in my blog article entitled Google launches a 4G LTE Google Nexus 7 and Google Chromecast Streaming Device - Uninspired Tablet upgrades but US$35 Google Chromecast is the Streaming World's Blue Jasmine”.

Amazon smartphone cometh – The Bamboo powered smartphone running Amazon apps

But Amazon appears not to be done yet, as according to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon has plans to launch a smartphone in September 2014 as stated in “Amazon, chasing Apple, Samsung, may enter smartphone market”, published April 11, 2014 2:20 PM PDT by Donna Tam, CNET News. If true, then Amazon can easily beat Apple or at least grab a sizeable chunk of the market as I’d predicted in my blog article entitled Amazon set to launch smartphone in Fourth Quarter of 2012AD - The App Economy and the Increasing Importance of Digical Content”, even though they’re launching this late.

Although they’ve yet to beat the Apple iPad, their introduction of the Amazon Kindle Fire forced Apple’s hand as I’d predicted in my Geezam blog article entitled “Amazon sells 5.5 million Kindle Fires in Fourth Quarter 2012 – Apple iPad sales drop and plans January Press Event”  and my blog article entitled Apple iPad 3 Launch on March 2012 - Amazon Kindle Fire is a Sweet Dream but a Beautiful Nightmare for Apple”.

Apple thus had to debut their Apple iPad Mini in 2012 making the whole world realize that there is indeed a market for 7” Tablets as stated in my Geezam blog article entitled “The Two Towers of Tablets, 7” Amazon Kindle Fire and 7.9” Apple iPad are the Global Tablet size of Choice” .

Now Apple has shown more faith in the 7” market with the launch of yet a second iteration, the Apple iPad Mini 2 launched in October 2013 as stated in my Geezam blog article entitled “Apple iPad Air’s the World Thinnest Tablet and Apple iPad Mini 2’s a 3DS and Vita killer”.

If Amazon launches a smartphone, it will have the same effect on Apple and Google as the Amazon Kindle Fire. I just hope by then CEO Jeff Bezos perfects his Fall Prevention Technology as I’ve described in my blog article entitled Amazon patents Fall Prevention Technology for smartphones and Tablets - The Research begins with Amazon’s patent that’s Hyde Park on Hudson”, so at to make his new smartphone unbreakable, albeit making it out of bamboo would be quite ok.

Here’s hoping it’ll also come with some sort of Tracking Technology to locate my smartphone. Sorta like the Nokia Treasure Tag as explained in my blog article entitled Nokia Treasure Tag to launch in April 2014 - Pirates on the Caribbean on Stranger Tides will find locating lost keys that much easier”. A departure from Android would also be good, as there’s a need to have alternative Operating Systems introduced in the smartphone arena.

With 200,000 app Store and a slowly growing Developer Clan, making a smartphone that sells would push them into the same arena that Facebook is also pushing into as described in my blog article entitled WhatsApp VoIP Calling in Second Quarter of 2014 - WhatsApp kills International Calling at the Advent of Facetime-eqsue Premium Video VoIP Calling on smartphones but with a physical Device.


Folks, keep following my blog for any News on the Amazon smartphone with Fall Prevention Technology and Tracking Technology coming by September 2014.
