Consider that the smartphone realm is a new one for Amazon, and they’d need something a little extra to bolster their position. HTC is a naturally good choice, as they have both the manufacturing prowess and distribution inroads necessary

The other side " for Amazon " would be " their product needs to be technologically better and the features smarter . The PLC of Smartphones is in its peak, and unless its a break out product... it can actually shrink the market from Samsung and Apple, rather than create a new market ,
