My thoughts exactly. Amazon is basically guaranteeing itself extra income from the buyers of the phone. Why is it selling for the same price as a full flagship phone then? It should have started at $99 at most. Also like you, I will never touch an AT&T contract.looks like a decent phone, but I wont be getting or consider getting one since i wont touch AT&T even with a long stick. $200-$300 on contract is also a tad high. maybe Im used to Amazons good tablet and ereader deals, but I expected amazon to do better pricing for their first phone.
I mean, at least its attempting to do something more innovative with the 3-D stuff.Not impressed, seems too gimicky to me.
it did state the extra cameras aren't the same and are "10x more efficient" than the cameras normally used, plus they would only turn on when you are using them. So theoretically its not going to have terrible battery life from the cameras, i could be wrong however, they didn't say a word about the battery life of the phone.i wonder how the batt life on this one is? with all those infra camera, also, at least one camera should be covered while you would hold the phone normally..
