Amazon makes a smartphone

The authors of the Kindle Fire are developing a device that will compete in the market with the iPhone and gadgets on the Android operating system, sources informally claim the online edition of Bloomberg. 

At the moment, the company is collecting patents that will protect it from claims from competitors in the future. It is not yet clear how long this preparatory period will last, as well as whether the company will take any actions before its end.
