The Amazon Fire Phone will be released on July 25th and includes one-free year of Amazon Prime. That gives you the opportunity to pick from thousands of movies and television shows to stream over your new phone. You can choose from among one million tunes to listen to, or 500,000 books and newspapers to read.
The Amazon Fire Phone comes with Mayday, which gives you the ability to speak with a customer service rep via a video chat. The rep also will have the ability to take control of your device, to help answer any of your questions. Better have a Wi-Fi connection when you use Mayday, because the data you consume will count against your monthly data allowance.

Don't do it! Wait a few months for Amazon to realize that it needs to drop the price in order to sell any phones!

On top of that, wait for them to realize that selling it exclusively for AT&T is a big mistake. They just cut out a huge section of the market by not having a Verizon version. Plus, it's AT&T. They don't even have LTE service in my area.

Amazon is on crack with that pricing! Are they so arrogant that they actually think their NAME is going to sell a lot of phones?!? Kindle sold well because they undercut the competition on price. They must be full of themselves. No thanks.

Agreed... They came in late on the game for this. If Google is really not happy with Amazon. Google can pretty much still bring in Nexus phones to mess with amazon. The reason the Nexus tablet was made is to counter amazon. Google will not let the Amazon smartphone business do its thing using their open OS for free to amazon version without making money of it.

Five front facing cameras to get a super accurate mugshot for the NSA. Good job Amazon.

One of the least interesting phones in a long time. If this phone were the only smartphone available, I'd rather do without. The phone offers little of value for the customer and every feature is designed for Amazon's benefit. And the price for this "I am a slave to Amazon" device... way too high. This needs to be free phone on contract. Even then, the free on contract LG G2 is a better phone for most people vs this Amazon phone.

ok it's not that bad, it's higher specs than Moto-X so it's at least worth 100 bucks off contract but 750 is unreasonable.

All of you have some point in saying it is over priced and it is designed for Amazon's profit. But it is also designed mutually for the consumer's profit as well. Amazon Prime offers renting books, free movie streams, and now free music streams. The 3d screen is ballsy considering it's the first of its kind when it comes to phones as far as I know. Creating their own OS for it is ballsy too considering how well the Android and iOS have done. Yes, it may be a little over priced and a little behind on hardware but in its defense, it is their first phone that is very competitive with all of the other phones on the market. The service of Amazon Prime is definitely an advantage that no other phone right now can offer. Also, if the OS is made well enough to work with the hardware, the speed of functionality may very well be just as fast and smooth as the topped spec phones on the market. I don't have any connection with Amazon besides being a user. I think it is way too early to rag on the phone and the idea. Especially on the basis of specs and price. The price will drop and the specs are good enough.

If anything, this will sell because the Mayday feature is beneficial to the sales reps. A live person to help is very important to some people. As intuitive as iPhones are supposed to be, there are still tons of books sold and hours wasted because the user doesn't "get" the device. Commission sales reps don't want to hand hold more than necessary, so being able to offload the live person that's not outsourced to another country will be a great boon for them. Well, that's the boat I'm in. This type of customer relations is what Apple's supposed to be known for. Amazon might take the customer service crown away from them with this.
