Not content to rest on the success of the Kindle family of tablets and ereaders, Amazon has continued to look for ways to expand their offerings to the public. Once a company gets a taste of being a device creator, they’re rarely satisfied with continuing to resell the stuff made by others. Hence, Amazon is looking to add to its portfolio in an interesting way. Amazon is believed to be working on a smartphone with a 3D screen. The company is also working on another smartphone, as well as an audio-streaming device.
Here’s the interesting thing about Amazon’s 3D smartphone. Rather than needing bulky glasses, the smartphone will use retina tracking technology to create 3D images that do not need special glasses; instead, the image will appear to project from the phone like a hologram, which might be the coolest thing ever. With an increasing amount of print media and movies being both 3D and viewed on smartphone screens, this is a great idea.
I’m not sure if I would want to jump into the smartphone world myself–the Kindle Fire has been a success, but the smartphone world is much more crowded–but to make the screens and then sell them to smartphone companies or make my own line of 3D computer and television screens? That’s a pretty good profit center with a lot less risk.
