The Amazon phone contains Firefly technology. This means that it can recognise almost anything that you point it to with the camera on the phone. It will recognise any text such as phone numbers and email addresses, it will recognise thousands of films by using X-Ray which is powered by IMDB, which then will bring up information on the film as well as the actors that are staring in the film. Firefly technology will also recognise any song that is being played at that moment in time, so that you know who the artist is and what song is playing. It will also recognise any book, CD, DVD and many other products that you point the camera at. The Firefly technology will ultimately give you the information that you would like and will also give you options to purchase the product that you have asked it to recognise, through Amazon. For instance, if you turn the television on half way through a film, you point your camera at the television and the Firefly technology will inform you of what film it is and will give you the option of downloading the film, adding it to your wish list or purchasing the film all through your Amazon account.

The technology that it has makes buying online even easier, the dynamic perspective gives the user a sense of the phone being 3D and also means that the user can read a page of text on the phone without having to physically scroll down, as the clever sensors know which part you are currently reading. The world is filled with new technology for people to try out and each year is advancing so rapidly.The smart phone, along with other smart devices is where technology is developing the most. Initially it was all about a phone being touchscreen and now it is all about mobile apps and constant battles between smart phone developers on who can bring out the most advanced phone. It looks like Amazon has kept this new phone very well hidden and surprised everyone with the Amazon Fire, the question is will Samsung and Apple be quick to catch up.
