Finally, the new smartphone called the Fire Phone is out. It looks like Apple’s iPhone and other Android devices but with fully loaded features that Amazon hardcore fans would surely love, and much more to those who already have a Kindle Fire Tablets.
Being the largest and the world’s leader in e-Commerce, it is Amazon’s goal to develop and design a phone that would allow users to connect seamlessly with all their products and services. Fire Phone is a first-rate, unrivaled e-commerce tool and a smartphone, all in one amazing device, isn’t that cool?
What makes this device a “want to be” is because of its unique feature called the Firefly. Primarily, it allows you to take random pictures on objects or things “on the fly” and the phone can recognize what those items are. Therefore, pointing your camera at any type of products, web pages, articles and QR codes is no problem at all.
On top of that, the new Fire Phone keeps history of all the things you scan and the most important feature of all is that you can directly get connected to Amazon’s online store and purchases those products online or you may simply add them to your “Wish List” first.
To add to that, Firefly can recognize over a hundred million items. So you don’t need to worry about the number of items to scan. Just have fun. And to make things much easier for you, the phone was designed with its own “Firefly Button” on the side.
Here are the Firefly features that you would surely love about your New Fire Phone as listed by Amazon:
1. Phone numbers, email addresses and website
The phone can easily identify the printed text found on posters, magazines, signs and business cards. More so, you don’t have to type long URLs or email addresses to make a call, send emails, visit a website or save contact information.
2. Movies and TV
This feature is irresistible. Firefly can recognize practically over 240,000 movies and TV episodes, and 160 live TV channels. Plus it has an X-Ray feature (powered by IMDb) that may show the information on actors, plot details and other related content which you can add to your Watch List or download the movie to watch later.
Aside from movies, Firefly also recognizes songs. And you can also access artist’ information, download albums or add them to Wish List so you can purchase them later. Plus, you can create radio stations based on a particular artist through its Firefly-enabled apps such as iHeartRadio and StubHub. You can also find tickets for the artist’s next concert.
4. 70M+ Products
The Firefly feature allows users to access product details and add them to their Wish List. Or better yet, order the Amazon product directly from their Fire Phone. The unit can recognize various household items, DVDs. CDs, books and many more.
5. The Firefly SDK
This is a feature that will allow users, particularly developers, to invent new ways in using this advance technology. They said that Firefly plans to integrate into the system artwork recognition, foreign language translation and even wine label recognition powered by Vivino sometime this year.
Amazon said that the Fire Phone also includes other features like Dynamic Perspective.
“Fire is the only smartphone with Dynamic Perspective and Firefly, two new breakthrough technologies that allow you to see and interact with the world through a whole new lens. Dynamic Perspective uses a new sensor system to respond to the way you hold, view, and move Fire, enabling experiences not possible on other smartphones. Firefly quickly recognizes things in the real world-web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR and bar codes, movies, music, and millions of products, and lets you take action in seconds-all with the simple press of the Firefly button.”
For those music app lovers, the new Fire Phone also comes with a Shazam-like application. This app can identify songs or shows that you are watching. It can also provide additional information about random subjects which usually include descriptions from Wikipedia. With this app, you may also purchase items directly from Amazon store.
With those features listed above, who wouldn’t love the New Amazon’s Fire Phone?
