Kindle News: WSJ says that Amazon is testing a smartphone with its suppliers

      The Wall Street Journal says Amazon's reportedly already testing its smartphone

The Wall Street Journal's Lorraine Luk in Taipei writes today that Amazon's working with component suppliers in Asia to test a smartphone (presumably their own).

  As always, "officials at some of Amazon's part suppliers" declined to be named, but they said that "mass production of the new device may start late this year or early next year."

  It's said that the screen of the phone currently being tested "measures between four and five inches."

Greg Bensinger in San Francisco contributed to the WSJ-Asia Technology report.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.
