Evidence shows that Amazon purchased Siri competitor Evi for $26 million
Amazon's legal representative in the U.K. Amazon's Company Secretary in the U.K., Mitre Secretaries Ltd, has the same title at Evi Technologies Ltd. Annual reports for VC firm Octopus Ventures shows that all of the firm's funds have sold their Evi Technologies shares.
So what is the game plan for Amazon? The most obvious thought is that the technology will be used for a new Amazon smartphone. Like the Amazon Kindle Fire, we can expect that there will be no Google apps anywhere on such a device which means Evi could be used as a replacement for Google Now.
