Amazon responded to Lessin's request for comment this weekend, telling a colleague that it had no plans to launch a smartphone this year. The company went on to say that even if it did, the phone "would not be free."

So this was nothing more than a Wall Street Journal writer getting it completely wrong.

Doesn't even make sense.

Amazon SELLS stuff, WHY would anyone believe they would GIVE AWAY anything for free that competes with their product line?
They didn't even give away kindles, which are basic tools to use their base product.

But Amazon does give away streaming. I don't pay for amazon Prime for streaming titles.

As long as you have a subscription, they don't mind.
