Amazon has announced a public product launch on June 18th in Seattle, with everyone able to ask for an invitation. Speculation is rife over what this product will be. Here are three suggestions based on Amazon's teaser video (below).

  1. Household mini-robot. (Handles floor-level cleaning chores and ties shoe laces).
  2. Holographic communications device. (Think Leia's message to Obi Wan).
  3. A smartphone. (The least likely of these three but we've put it for good measure).

 

Actually now that we've had chance to see the video again, it just might be a smartphone after all!
