Tech Tuesday: Amazon Fire 3-D Smartphone


The most anticipated 3-D smartphone has arrived for the masses to purview. Has it lived up to your expectations?  Michael A. Prospero, Reviews Editor over on Fox News Tech has a more in depth analysis than mine, from which I borrowed.  Here are his 7 top features, I paraphrased:

1. Design: it looks like a phone.

2. Camera: it has one, albeit 13 mp.

3. Video and Music: it can play.

4. Customer Support: you can talk to a real person, for free and not be shoved/pawned off to their forums.

5. FireFly: it can recognize anything you take a picture of.

6. Dynamic Perspective: Tracks your face to give you in-depth images from any angle. Creepy.

7. Active Widgets:  active widgets.
