Amazon’s slow selling Fire Phone is getting the fire sale treatment ahead of Apple’s iPhone launch. Adrian Kinglsey-Hughes:
Amazon has slashed the price of its Fire Phone smartphone from $199 to $0.99, as long as you are willing to take out a 2-year contract with AT&T. While Amazon’s previous forays into hardware with the Kindle ebook reader and the Kindle tablet have been seen as successes, the Fire Phone has been seen as a flop, with growth being painfully slow.
Only Amazon knows how many Kindles have been sold, but the number is so high that the company won’t say. And that’s success?
