Amazon smartphone still on the way; currently known inside Amazon as Project Aria
According to Saturday's report, the Amazon phone is known inside the company as Project Aria and will most likely employ the same forked version of Android that is employed on the company's Kindle Fire slates. That means no Google services or Google branded applications. Amazon even has its own appstore on its tablets, which would certainly be used with the phone.
The report, which was published today, states that the Amazon phone would be launched later this year in the US., Europe, Asia and Latin America. It goes on to add that Amazon has been in talks about getting its handset distributed by one or more of the major U.S. carriers.
