True, but it does not feature 4 infra-red cameras and these need some space.

Shows that amazon did not think the design through

I guess more competition is good, but geez do we need another Android-based OS? They would have hit the mark at $99 on contract. I can't see this going anywhere, particularly when many of the features and specs have already been done. Fire Fly is just Bing Vision which has been on Windows Phone for a while. Ditto regarding the camera button.
Being exclusive to a carrier is a big face palm. Just ask Nokia and Microsoft how that has worked out for them for the first 18 months of WP8.
The ONLY enticing element of this phone that I read was the unlimited cloud storage for photos. Of course, Amazon will data mine them all but it's still nice.

The camera tech on the fire phone hasn't been on any other phone. Something like firefly has been on all smart phones for a while now. QR codes, barcodes, image scanning. Although Amazon has packaged it nicely and it has a number of tricks not found on WP.
The unlimited cloud is good, but I really like the Amazon prime for videos and movies, as well as access to over 20 million songs. Just access to the movies and music alone is worth the $199.

Last I heard it was 1M songs, not 20M songs.

It's almost as big as a GS5. but with a screen almost a half inch smaller. it's a 720p screen vs a 1080p. has a slower chipset and no SD card. Oh, and it doesn't even support the play store. No thanks!

It may sell ok at first, but they will need to drop the price to 99.00 on contract when the iPhone 6 arrives...
