Amazon seems to be giving up on making smartphones

 

Amazon may be hitting roadblock as far as its Fire smartphones are concerned. The company has very recently released a group of engineers retained to work on phones, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal Wednesday evening.

Those engineers worked at Lab126, Amazon’s super-secretive hardware development shop in Silicon Valley, the WSJ reported, citing “people familiar with the matter.” Amazon is said to be scaling back or discontinuing several other high-ambition projects at Lab126, including development of a large-screen tablet.
