小编摘要:分析家预测亚马逊公司将于2012年底前推出一款4英寸屏的智能手机,价格比iPhone便宜并且很多部件的供货商与苹果的供货商一致,你是不是很心动呢?

 导读:Kindle Fire让亚马逊又火了一把,这款集视频、电视、音乐于一体的平板电脑被视作iPad的强有力竞争对手,200美元的售价令消费者们难以抗拒它的诱惑。分析家们预测,圣诞节期间它的销售量可能会达到五百万部。基于对亚马逊公司在远东市场的供应链分析,这款7英寸的平板电脑可能只是打断苹果公司建立的触摸屏娱乐垄断的开始。明年亚马逊将推出一款类似于iPhone但价格便宜的智能手机。



Reactions to Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet - an iPad rival capable of playing video, television and music - have been mixed.

But the gadget's $200 (£128) price tag may prove irresistible to consumers - and analysts predict that the Fire may sell up to five million units this Christmas.

The secret weapon of the gadget - only available in the U.S. - is easy and instant access to Amazon's huge library of entertainment.

Among the early reviews, the pithiest comment was Wired magazine's: 'The Fire is a fiendishly effective shopping portal in the guise of a 7-inch slate.'

Amazon is reportedly losing a small amount - $3 - per Fire tablet it sells. But the fact the tablets are intended to sell entertainment means that it should more than make up for this early loss when users buy, rent and enjoy films and music.

Now analysis of Amazon's supply chain in the Far East has revealed that the 7in tablet may just be the beginning of an assault on the touchscreen entertainment monopoly that Apple has built over the past decade.

A smartphone - similar to Apple's iPhone, but considerably cheaper - could be on sale by late next year.

Analysts Citigroup said, 'We view this as the logical next step for Amazon.'

Reports have suggested it will have a 4in screen (bigger than iPhone's) and an eight megapixel camera.  

Citigroup said it believes the online retail giant is now jointly developing the phone with Foxconn International Holdings, the world’s top contract cellphone maker, which has made many of Apple's most successful products.      

'With the clear success of the Kindle e-Reader over the past three years, and Kindle Fire possibly succeeding in the low-priced tablet market, we view this as the next logical step for Amazon,’ says Citigroup.      

It expects Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd - another supplier of hi-tech components for Apple's products - to actually make the device and multiple components. 

'We expect Amazon’s smartphone to be a mid-end device based on the processor it adopts,’ the brokerage said, and pegged the company’s total cost for making such a phone at $150-$170 each.  

It's widely expected that Amazon will sell the phone at or around cost price - allowing it, once again, to severely undercut Apple's smartphone. 

The company’s recently launched Kindle Fire tablet device using components from Texas Instruments, Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Hynix Semiconductor.   
 
'We continue to believe Amazon has now set its eyes on the Mobile (and tablet) Media and Product consumption frontier,' said Citigroup.
