Live blog: Amazon’s mobile phone event in Seattle

11 Comments

We’ve heard rumors about an Amazon(s AMZN) smartphone for over a year. Is a 3D phone with subsidized data through AT&T(s T) for real?

Wednesday morning, we’ll find out: The company is expected to unveil a new device at an event in its hometown of Seattle. My colleague Kevin Fitchard and I will be live blogging here starting at around 10 a.m. PT, with the official event expected to begin at 10:30 a.m. PT. In the meantime, please leave us your Seattle coffee and restaurant recommendations in the comments.

That ATT exclusive kind of puts a damper on my enthusiasm for the phone. Oh well. Carrier agnostic would have been awesome.

Oh man I hope he has a contract buy out so I can get one of these cool phones!

““Services matter, too. It’s not just the hardware.” That’s kind of a duh for anyone who follows Amazon’s device strategy. Sell the hardware cheap (though of course we don’t know what the phone costs yet) and make money on the services.”

Yes, but that’s true for almost all of cell phone land.

Oh man I just had an apple fritter from there for my first breakfast of the day. I will be bringing back a box of donuts back to NYC in my carry-on for sure!

Since you will be in S. Lake Union you should check out Vivace Espresso across from the REI flagship store. Vivace is rumored to have the best latte in town (although plenty of Seattle-ites will enjoy debating that.)

Also check out Rowhouse Cafe. Great breakfast and happy hour cocktails there.

Diva Espresso for solid, good coffee and strong neighborhood vibe. They don’t seem to want to branch out and become large, which is a good sign that they want to be coffee geeks first and businessmen second. Shops up on Stone Way and Greenwood are my favorites.
