Rumors of an Amazon-branded phone are not new and the cogs have finally started turning. According to Taiwan Economic News, the online retail giant has allegedly contracted Foxconn to built its Kindle smartphone. 

BGR - "The news corroborates Digitimes’ report late last month that Foxconn will have the smartphones ready for a mid-2013 launch. The site claims Amazon has ordered 5 million smartphones with each unit said to cost between $100 to $200. Finally, the report states Foxconn will be working with touch panel makers J Touch and Young Fast Optoelectronics to receive supply parts for Amazon’s smartphones."

Chances of it being sold in Singapore are very slim but there are fortunately, ways to get around it. Good news is: if you are looking for an Amazon Android-based smartphone, you don't have to wait much longer.
