    [Follow-Up] More Details Emerge on Possible HTC Kindle Phones



    Just yesterday we shared a story that HTC and Amazon might be teaming up to make forked Android Kindle smartphones. We already have a follow-up article with more details. According to this new report, Amazon and HTC have been in talks since at least June of this year "to develop handsets for sale to users of the Amazon Prime service." The main reason for this is supposedly that Amazon wants to have more devices which access their Amazon Instant Video service. They also want to sell phones through subscriptions with carriers.

    One other detail suggests that Amazon has not yet fully committed to the idea, but that both companies have already devoted some time and resources to this project so it looks like a distinct possibility. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Three devices are being discussed by Amazon and HTC, the Financial Times reported earlier, citing people familiar with the project it didn’t name.

    “HTC doesn’t comment on rumors and speculation,” the Taoyuan, Taiwan-based company said in an e-mailed response yesterday. Drew Herdener, a spokesman for Seattle-based Amazon, didn’t return a request for comment.
    What do you guys think? Could this be an idea that helps save HTC and helps Amazon break into this business?

    HTC certainly seems to need something to stop this slide they're in. It's sad because they really *do* make some really nice phones.

    They aren't in a slide, they are hanging off a cliff. I hope the best comes of it, but they are losing what little grip they have.
