It's not clear if the trial is still occurring, or what came of the testing
is taking its commitment to Web technology a step further by testing its own wireless network.
A new report by
said that Amazon had a trial for its new wireless network around its Lab126 research facilities in Cupertino, California. Lab126 is where Kindle devices are made.
Amazon used spectrum controlled by Globalstar Inc., which is a satellite communications company that is seeking regulatory approval to adjust 80 percent of its spectrum to terrestrial use. If this were to happen, it could lease its spectrum to companies like Amazon.
It's not clear if the trial is still occurring, or what came of the testing at Lab126. However, it makes sense that Amazon is dipping into this new realm, since the company has already covered how users connect to the Web (Kindle devices) and where they go once connected (shopping at Amazon.com). Amazon offering a way for Kindle users to connect to the Web covers yet another step in the process.
Now is a good time for Amazon to take on new ventures, since the company seems to be flourishing. Just last month, it announced that it will
hire 5,000 new full-time workers
at 17 fulfillment centers around the U.S.
Amazon is also pushing its latest line of
Kindle Fire HD products
by slashing prices. Back in March, the company cut the price of its 8.9-inch model from $299 to $269 for the Wi-Fi version and $499 to $399 for the 4G version.
