According to a pair of anonymous sources, Amazon is currently developing a smartphone to compete with the iPhone and numerous Android devices already on the market. Amazon is reportedly working on the smartphone with Foxconn, the same Chinese company that manufacturers the iPhone. A smartphone would help extend the reach of Amazon and would be a nice addition to a lineup that features several different models of Kindle. Amazon is also working to acquire a variety of intellectual property in an attempt to avoid any infringement lawsuits that could be brought against the company if it released a phone.
