    Default Amazon Announces a Special Media Event on June 18, Smartphone Expected to be Unveiled


    Amazon recently announced that it will be holding a special media event on June 18 for an unannounced product that many expect will be the Internet retailerís first foray into the smartphone business. The photo above highlights what appears to be an Amazon branded portable device, one that is accompanied by a teaser video showing people handling a small device and commenting on what looks to be 3D motion tracking technology.

    Interestingly enough, the pictured device is nearly identical to renders that were leaked back in April. At the time, it was reported that Amazonís graphics designers created the images. Amazonís rumored device will likely sport six cameras for 3D imaging, a 4.7-inch touchscreen display and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

    The three-dimensional user interface is expected to be the handsetís main draw, with users able to manipulate onscreen objects like wallpapers and icons via gestures. From the video released today, it looks like the phone will react to head motions as well, offering an enhanced type of parallax view seen in iOS 7.

    Amazonís event is slated for June 18 and those interested can request an invitation through a special page on the companyís website.

    Wow I don't even remember the facebook phone. I wondered if it's buried in Arizona with all those ET cartridges, Dell Axis and MS Zunes?
