Why Amazon's Fire Phone hasn't set the smartphone market ablaze

Susie Ochs | Aug. 22, 2014
Maybe Amazon should offer free puppies to app developers who can make Firefly and Dynamic Perspective must-haves instead of nice-to-haves.

Now, I really feel that the reviewers who are quick to dismiss the Fire Phone as just about shopping maybe aren't the ones in their households who do the bulk of the purchasing. Stocking all the consumables that keep my house running is a tiring and often thankless task, so I've found Firefly to be handy (when it works, anyway).

But I realize it's not a cool enough gimmick to entice huge numbers of switchers. Maybe Amazon should offer free puppies to app developers who can make Firefly and Dynamic Perspective must-haves instead of nice-to-haves.

A phone with unique features, tons of apps that take advantage of them, and a low price: now that's a Fire that could really catch on.
