Video: Amazon Fire Phone Goes On Sale Today At AT&T

Clip Syndicate

Amazon revealed yesterday during earnings that while revenues are growing, so are losses. That’s thanks at least in part to the development and production of the Amazon Fire Phone, which goes on sale exclusively at ATT starting today.

Video: Amazon Debuts Wallet App For Rewards And Gift Cards

Amazon's Fire Phone doesn't go on sale for a few more days but the company has already begun to quietly roll out new apps for its first smartphone. The company launched Amazon Wallet, its first mobile wallet application, on the Amazon Appstore and Google Play. While Amazon is calling it a wallet, you can't actually make purchases using the app. Instead, Amazon Wallet functions as a vault to store rewards and gift cards. Users enter their card information manually or by scanning them with their device's camera. Once stored, the app will display the card's balance and rewards information.

MTV will use its fairly new Snapchat account on Thursday to unveil this year's nominees for the Video Music Awards before they're announced anywhere else.

From there, you can touch an enlarged shutter button to snap a pic.

Video: 'Smart Glass' Could Produce DSLR-Quality Smartphone Photos

Newly developed smart glass technology that mimics the shutter capabilities of a traditional camera could improve the pictures you snap on your smartphone. Researchers in Germany have developed a camera component for smartphones that helps adjust light, exposure and focus. The smart glass in the micro-iris could function as an aperture — it can adjust how much light enters the camera, preventing too much exposure and helping to focus the image. The researchers said, the micro-iris is also incredibly low-powered, requiring only 1.5 volts of electricity, which means handheld smartphones are well-suited to handle it.
