Following Amazon’s failed efforts to break into the smartphone space with its Fire handset last year, the company is said to be laying off engineers in the hardware unit responsible for the handset. Amazon has also scaled back or canceled some products, including a large-screen tablet, the Journal reported. Submissions relating to business and politics must be sufficiently within the context of technology in that they either view the events from a technological standpoint or analyse the repercussions in the technological world.

 

 

  • The layoffs would appear to signal a retrenching for Amazon, switching the lab’s focus from the smartphones to products for the smart home.
  • Remember; personal attacks, directed abusive language, trolling or bigotry in any form, are therefore not allowed and will be removed.
  • reportedly the first cuts in the 11-year history of the unit – could not be determined due to nondisclosure agreements employees are required to sign, the Journal reported.
