> The Things You Can Read: Amazon Smart Phone? Release Pushed Back

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Amazon Smart Phone? Release Pushed Back

According to a recent blurb on Shelf Awareness, Amazon has delayed the release of its, "...long-awaited and oft-rumored smartphone, originally scheduled for the second quarter of 2013, Digitimes reports."  

I don't know about you, but we had no idea that such a project was in the works.  Again, according to Shelf Awareness, "The delay stems from manufacturing challenges at Foxconn, where the phone is still undergoing its EVT, or engineering verification test, according to Digitimes' sources. Amazon had planned for the phone to go into mass production by Q2. Amazon"  

We are big Kindle (we also own a Nook Color, but prefer the Kindle White), and Audible.com fans, so such a device would increase our reading and listening pleasure threefold.  Would you be a customer for such a device?  We would.  We wait with great anticipation the release of this new product.

Happy Reading!
