Mumbai: Amazon is reportedly working on a Google Android based smartphone with low-priced hardware bundled with Amazon services.
The company is working closely with Foxconn, the same company that manufactures the iPhone for Apple, says Bloomberg quoting a source. As of now there are no details on when the Amazon branded smartphone will hit markets.
Last year, Amazon announced the Kindle Fire tablet with a stripped down version of Android and the Fire is one of the top-selling Android-based tablets. It was to counter the Fire that Google along with Asus announced the Nexus 7. Now it seems to be Amazon's turn to hit back with an affordable phone.
