Amazon sells out of Fire smartphone

Thursday 10 September 2015 | 13:47 CET | News
Amazon has sold out its Fire smartphone and appears unlikely to put more to stock on sale. The phone's product page lists the device as "currently unavailable", with an additional note in the buy box stating: "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." An Amazon spokeswoman confirmed to GeekWire that the company sold out of its inventory of Fire phones in the US and globally at the end of August. Launched in June 2014, the phone was cut several times in price to as little as 99 cents with a two-year contract at AT&T. This summer, Amazon slashed the cost of the phone to USD 60
