Amazon’s Fire Phone has finally been fired. The subtantially produced smartphone called Fire Phone by Amazon is no longer available to buy from its soucre and AT &T. Amazon confirmed this to The Verge on Wednesday the 9th Day of September, 2015 adding that they have no future plans for the poorly recieved and overlay developed smartphone.
Poor sales of the Fire Phone led to it being quickly discounted to nearly free on contract. Since then, Amazon has responded by reorganizing its hardware lab and laying off a number of engineers. It’s an unfortunate path for a unit that has produced some great devices — like the Kindle line — but the Fire Phone, one of the lab’s biggest bets, turned out to be a flop. The Fire Phone’s discontinuation doesn’t mean that Amazon is done making phones forever, but you can expect something very different if it ever tries again.
