The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon is not working on just one, but two new smartphones. One of the smartphones is said to feature a 3-D screen that won't require glasses. The implementation would likely be similar to the Nintendo 3DS, though the sources note that the 3-D works from any angle, something the 3DS isn't capable of.

The WSJ sources added that this is just one of several forays into the hardware world. The projects are being worked on at Amazon's Cupertino Lab126 and are known by letters: Project A, B, C, and D, or collectively the Alphabet Projects. The sources warn that some of these projects may never see the light of day due to performance, financial, or other concerns.

We've previously heard rumors that Amazon is working on a smartphone to complement its Kindle line and it does seem like the next logical step. We've also reported rumors that Amazon is working on a set-top box to allow easier access to its Prime video content. We will likely see some of these devices launch in the coming months.
