Amazon Fire Phone First Look

with Nick Brazzi

Video: Welcome

Thanks for joining me for this first look with the Amazon Fire Phone. The Fire Phone is a touch screen smart phone designed by Amazon. It does all the things that you would expect a smart phone to do, and there are a few special features that are only available on this device. In this First Look, we'll focus on a little of both, making sure you know the essentials of using the Fire Phone, while also getting familiar with the big new features that were introduced with this device. We'll start by getting familiar with the interface, and understanding how the menus and navigation works on the Fire Phone.

Welcome

Thanks for joining me for this first look with the Amazon Fire Phone. The Fire Phone is a touch screen smart phone designed by Amazon. It does all the things that you would expect a smart phone to do, and there are a few special features that are only available on this device. In this First Look, we'll focus on a little of both, making sure you know the essentials of using the Fire Phone, while also getting familiar with the big new features that were introduced with this device. We'll start by getting familiar with the interface, and understanding how the menus and navigation works on the Fire Phone.

Next, we'll talk about dynamic perspective, which uses face tracking technology to power interactive motion elements in the interface, giving the feeling of looking through a window into three dimensional space. We'll look at the Firefly feature, which is a tool for identifying music, movies, TV shows, and even objects that you might buy in a store using the built in camera and microphone. Finally, we'll look at essential operations like making phone calls, sending text messages, downloading new apps from the Amazon App Store, and taking pictures with the built-in camera.

So, let's get going with Amazon Fire Phone First Look.
