It amazes me how Amazon has been diverging its strategy and going from selling books to hardware owned products.
Yeah it really surprises me. The move into web services made a lot of sense to me due to Amazon’s experience with it on their own infrastructure. The Kindle made a lot of sense to me since it seemed like a move back to their roots of books.
I guess the Kindle Fire and now this phone are Amazon realizing the Kindle hardware they’ve been working on isn’t bad and having a crack at other big markets.
