the tool that automatically recognizes basically everything the phone looks at and hears Bezos quickly demoed the feature with a DVD, detergent, a song that was playing, and more, and the phone almost immediately gave him a way to buy everything
I will buy this phone just so I can dump detergent on it and have it identify it for me.

Looks like a nice collection/integration of technology. Interested to see how they break into the smartphone market, considering their success with the e-book market.

Looks like a product for those who feel underserved by current shopping options. I'll stick to the web/apps for my purchasing options at the moment ... and Amazon is currently on my shit list for this stuff.

Yessss, I can finally talk abut this. I got to work on the launch event the past two weeks, so it was fun to see everyone's predictions about the phone (3D lol). It's a really great phone, the features don't feel at all tacky, but useful in a sense. The firefly feature is fuckin' tight as haaaale. UI is eh, but they solved the dreaded "hamburger" icon that everyone is using now a days with motion. I'm pretty much biased, but it's a great alternative to the iphone/samsung phones.

Interesting. Not something I would pounce on right away especially when I have never been less than satisfied with my iPhones, but we'll see what people are saying a year or so after it's been on the market.

the hachette thing is a little fucked up and only worsens my worries about monopolization, but amazon is still the best.
