Kindle ebook maker Amazon is reported to working on a new generation of 3D smartphone which wouldn’t require glasses to view 3D images or  videos.

According to reports in the Wall Street Journal, the device will use retina-tracking technology to make images on the smartphone’s display appear to ‘float above the screen like a hologram and appear three-dimensional at all angles.’

So far only a hand-count of companies – Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Motorola and LP – have launched 3D moible phones in international market apart from ones by home grown companies like Micromax, Sice Mobility and Lava.

The company is also rumoured to be working on an ‘audio-only’ streaming device.

It has a 4.3inch HD screen capable of autostereoscopy – the ability to view 3D content without the need for specialised glasses.

It also has two rear-facing 5MP camera that can take photos in 3D.

Mail Online reports that speculation about Amazon smartphones began in 2011 and the latest rumoured gadgets will be a follow-up to Amazon’s Kindle Fire and the Kindle Fire HD.

Amazon launched the tablets in September last year.

The company is also said to be working on a set-top box that would stream video from Lovefilm – a video rental and streaming site owned by Amazon.

It will use Amazon’s existing video services, called Amazon Video on demand in the US and Lovefilm in the UK.


‘The e-commerce giant is planning to introduce a device this fall dedicated to streaming video over the Internet and into its customers’ living rooms, according to three people familiar with the project who aren’t authorized to discuss it,’ Bloomberg has claimed.

Earlier this month Amazon introduced 14 televisions pilots, which it financed, and it is now monitoring customer feedback to decide which ones to produce as full series.
