5 Things to Expect From an Amazon Smartphone: 3D Display

Let’s get this one out of the way first. One of the things that Amazon smartphone rumors have been consistent about is some sort of glasses-free, 3D display capability.

Would being able to see products being sold on Amazon in three dimensions make the Amazon smartphone a must-have?

Maybe it could be used in gaming, as with Nintendo’s (NTDOY) 3DS, to offset the considerable lead the iPhone and Android smartphones would have in game apps. Maybe Amazon is just trying to find some feature that will make its entry stand out in a crowded and mature smartphone market. After all, it would have to compete against lightning-fast processors, high-pixel-density displays, killer cameras and fingerprint sensors.

I’ve got my doubts about how effective 3D would be in selling an Amazon smartphone — it didn’t work too well in the TV market — but it sounds as though Amazon is going to give it a shot.
