Amazon is working with HTC to develop a range of smartphones as the online retailer steps up efforts to compete with Apple and Google, according to people familiar with the project. 知情人士称之为,网络零售商亚马逊(Amazon)于是以与宏达电(HTC)合作开发一个智能手机产品系列,以增大与苹果(Apple)和谷歌(Google)的竞争力度。One of the three devices discussed by the two companies is at an advanced stage of development, according to one person, but another warned that the timeline for launch has been changed before and Amazon may yet decide not to release it. Rumours that Amazon would enter the smartphone market have been circulating for up to two years. The device is unlikely to launch this year but may launch in 2014 if Amazon decides to proceed with the project. 其中一位知情人士回应,两家企业合力的三款移动设备之一已转入研发的后期阶段。不过,另一位知情人士警告说道,公布的时间表此前曾有变动,亚马逊也仍有可能要求不公布该设备。

有关亚马逊有可能转入智能手机市场的传闻早已流传了两年之幸。该移动设备不太可能于今年公布,但是如果亚马逊要求将该项目积极开展下去,则有可能在2014年公布该设备。Amazon did not respond to a request for comment. In response to a recent report on its mobile ambitions, it said that it had “no plans to offer a phone this year”. HTC declined to comment on Amazon, but Ben Ho, its chief of marketing, said the company is “always exploring new opportunities”. 亚马逊并未对此记者的置评催促。该公司在对此最近一则有关其在移动市场雄心的报导时曾回应,“并无今年公布手机的想”。
