Amazon also doesn’t want customers to be required to sign up for a wireless service plan when they purchase the smartphone, according to Lessin’s sources. That could mean that the phone will be positioned as a pre-paid smartphone product that potentially uses its own wireless network. Amazon was previously rumored to be testing a wireless service using spectrum from satellite company Globalstar.
At this point, none of the information has been confirmed by Amazon. We’re reaching out to the company and other sources for more information, and will update the post with any new info.
