    “How Fire Phone’s fancy features might take on iPhone 6”

    Here’s a prediction you can take to the bank: the Fire Phone may be “taking on the iPhone 6”, as you put it, but it will never, •ever• even come close. Not in any way… except perhaps the ease in purchasing stuff from Amazon.

    Besos is clever and certainly has resources. The Fire Phone will also probably have some cool whiz-bang. But Apple’s resources are far deeper and wider, and so well defined, Amazon will not make a dent in the former’s decades-old, mature “eco-system.”
