The Verge have quite the exclusive tonight, reporting that Retail giant Amazon could announce their own smartphone tomorrow. The Verge report from "multiple sources" that Amazon are indeed working on a smartphone.
This smartphone would run on a "variant of the Kindle Fire's Android-based operating system", and should be unveiled to the press tomorrow. The phone is reportedly not in a finished state, which means even if it is announced tomorrow, it'll be a little while before we see the smartphone hit shelves or e-tailers.
The Verge expect it to run a "forked" version of Android, which will include Nokia Maps as the location solution over Google Maps, which is what forking means. Nokia also spoke today about adding a "major" mapping partner at their own Windows Phone event, and Amazon is big enough to be a major partner, wouldn't you agree?
