The CES 2017 has had some amazing moments so far and one of them was definitely when  Huawei announced that it will be adding Amazon's artificial intelligence application Alexa to its flagship smartphone for its US launch.
This of course, means when US consumers purchase a Mate 9 handset it will include the personal digital assistant developed by Amazon.
The Mate 9, a large-screen "phablet" marketed as a rival to the big handsets from Apple and Samsung, will be available to US buyers in "early 2017," the Chinese firm said at the Las Vegas tech show.


Acording  to the Chinese company, the Mate 9 will be the first smartphone to pre-install Amazon Alexa.
Alexa is Amazon's answer to Siri as it is a digital assistant that can control home devices and so on. Amazon had earlier stated that they would be making Alexa available to third parties.

While Alexa won't be preinstalled in phones for people outside the USA, it will be available as an update.



Amazon has finally done it!

On Wednesday, the company said that they have successfully made their first delivery by drone.

The delivery to a customer near Cambridge, England, was announced in a tweet by Amazon founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos.

"First-ever #AmazonPrimeAir customer delivery is in the books. 13 min—click to delivery," he wrote of the December 7 order.

A video on Amazon's web page showed the delivery process—with a quadcopter drone delivering an Amazon Fire TV box and a bag of popcorn to a customer identified only as Richard B.

Amazon, which has been testing drone deliveries in the US and elsewhere, has on several occasions complained that the regulatory environment in the United States for these automated deliveries is more cumbersome.

In its video, Amazon noted that it is working with two customers receiving drone deliveries in the Cambridge area and soon hoped to expand to "dozens" near its warehouse.

Google have also said that they'd want to jump on the drone delivery bandwagon with a project called Wing and there are some reports saying US retail behemoth Wal-Mart is also studying drone deliveries.

In the US, the first commercial drone delivery was made in July when convenience store 7-Eleven, with drone startup Flirtey, transported a chicken sandwich, hot coffee and donuts to a customer near Reno, Nevada.

Project Wing announced plans this year to deliver burritos in partnership with US food chain Chipotle to students at Virginia Tech University, one of the campuses where drone research is being conducted.


Amazon got British approval this year for flying drones that are no longer within sight of their operators in rural and suburban areas; having one person operate several highly automated drones; and testing devices to make the drones able to identify and avoid obstacles

Here's anexclusive picture of the first Amazon Mobile smartphone, leaked by an insider and thanks to BGR for letting it out. Though this just gives me an Apple feeling they might face a lawsuit for actually design cloning.

But i think its classy atleast when it officially gets into the market in the coming weeks, folks who like Apple design and they can't afford it here's a seconder. Sadly it's not global i guess on in the US.

The device is said to be coming with a 2GB of RAM, 4.7-inch display with 720p HD resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, six individual camera modules and a highly customized version of Google’s Android operating system similar to the one seen on Amazon’s various Kindle Fire tablets.

Funny comment...

IPhone front, Android back, Samsung home button, and Amazon Logo centered perfectly up to on the back. Now talking on the phone will remind passers-by that they need to shop on Amazon instead of going into retail stores. Oh yeah, store clerks will now look at you funny when start price checking while walking down an isle.
