    With the exception of music, I don’t see how the Amazon infrastructure would be very well suited for phone size. Maybe it’s a personal thing, but I don’t like watching movies or reading on something 4″ in size. 7″ is a minimum really, and even that’s pushing it for something like movie streaming.
