And what is it?

One of the questions, if the requestor is an app developer, is "are you interested in developing apps utilizing a new type of sensor?"

Very interesting.

Oh goody, they finally figured out a way to read my sub-conscious mind and send me stuff two days before I think to order it. Call it Prime Negative 2 day shipping.

This is going to be awesome!

I'm guessing something related to their cell phone which supposedly has a 3D display. That would require special apps to take advantage of the technology.

Sarida says:
It's got to be 3D, doesn't it? What "moves with you?" Fire screens don't, nor eink readers.

I was trying to figure out if it could be something with Fire TV, but that doesn't seem logical. The 3D hand gaming units a few years ago weren't that popular in my area, but maybe a 3D phone???

It can be confusing, though.

Today, for example, I just got a shipment of Kaytee Supreme for Hamster and Gerbil, 10-Pound (I don't have any pets... today), 2010 Crazy Fit Massager Full Body Vibration Exercise Machine by Tripact Inc, and Scilogex 91302341 Model DM0412 Clinical Centrifuge with A12-10P Rotor, US Plug, 110/240V.

I have a feeling Friday is going to be very interesting when I find out what I need these for.

If you think you're confused now, wait until the 10 gallon bucket of coconut oil, and the German Bar Maid costume show up.

It's like party planning before you even realized you were going to throw a party.

Why would I need another German Bar Maid costume? Oktoberfest is months away.

I submitted my entry.
Now I'll just sit by the phone and wait ....
Sure hope it isn't a gimmicky battery-killing, glasses-free 3D phone.

And by the way, let me make an official guess as to the name.
Ready? Here goes. *ahem*
"Kindle Spark"! Thank you. *bows*

I'm not a cellphone guy: the battery life scares me.

But if the Kindle Spark is Free-$20,
PLUS is running FireOS so I can have a couple of time-killer games on it
PLUS has some sort of an innovative contract payment scheme
PLUS with the whole 3D/eye-tracking interface thing, I'll definately pick one up
just to have something inexpensive to carry and futz around with, y'know?

A cheap, fun thing to have in your pocket.

Oh no....I was just struck with the thought that new phone users will be posting here....

Does it work in Nepal?
Can I download my iTunes on it?
Can I get Google Play?
Does it do everything an iPhone will do?
How much data can I use?
Can I play Farmville?
Where are my books?

Why can't I call my Mom?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 6, 2014 5:58:47 AM PDT
I can't even ... ughn. Please, PLEASE, PLE-E-E-EASE don't let them call the damn thing another Fire.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 6, 2014 6:02:27 AM PDT
Sarida says:
Uhm...because you are on T-mobile and they don't have coverage in Outer Mongolia which you did NOT check before purchasing the device!

Or, because you didn't pay your bill?

Or because she changed her number because all you do is ask for money?

OHHHHHHHHH the dread if they name it a "Kindle" or a "Fire."

How do I answer a call?

How do I make a call with no circle thing for dialing numbers?

They didn't include a wire to connect this to the wall phone outlet. Where do I get one?

No one told me that I had to buy a data plan! Bait and switch! Fraud! I have an older Kindle and I didn't have to buy a data plan for that! Amazon just wants my money!

Actually, I think a link to the General Help Forum is in order. Let those poor slobs deal with it.

I want one that looks like this
Black Color Vintage 1970's STYLE ROTARY Retro old fashioned Rotary Dial Home Telephone

I actually have one of those. Will it work with the Kendall Fireball Phone?

Can I use it in the sun?

Seriously. Cut & paste over and over and over.

"The phone is not a Kindle. This is a Kindle forum. You want this: [link]."

Only if they include this in the package:

Sport-Brella XL - Portable Sun and Weather Shelter
