INDUSTRY NEWS: Amazon Fire Phone set for release

Kindle fans might be happy at the upcoming release from Amazon - a smartphone containing an in-built Kindle store.
According to The Bookseller, the Fire Phone will allow users to access the Kindle store, Audible, and the Kindle Lending Library. Also built into the phone will be Amazon Music, along with 200,000 videos. Fire TV is said to be available 'as soon as possible'.
Sadly for those of us in the UK who might fancy reading the latest releases on the Fire Phone, the device is currently only available in the US on pre-order. It's priced at $199 (or $27 a month for the 32GB version). American buyers can pick up a 64GB model for $299, exclusively through AT&T.
What do you think of this new device? Will you be purchasing?
