Amazon Kindle Integeration

Post by anks461 » Sun Dec 13, 2009 2:53 am

Amazon.com sells OOMA devices in good quantity. So they are a natural partner to OOMA. Amazon's kindle has 3G capability, 3G Internet Capability , Speakers/ Headphone support. It will be great if we can have Kindle account integerated with OOMA account - to listen voice messages on Kindle in any part of the world. Similarly in future text messages sent to OOMA phone number may be read and replied via Amazon's Kindle. By this Kindle's key pad functionality be also utilized to maxiumum.

The only limit I can see here is Amazon's agreement with Sprint to provide the wireless coverage. The agreement may only be for text so voice and other data intensive tasks may not be feasible in ways that are out of Ooma's control.

True, the fact that it has free 3G coverage with no monthly fees and no contracts is to allow you to shop and BUY books and other media content. If you started using Kindle for surfing the internet, sending and receiving text messages, checking your Ooma voice mail, etc. Then Amazon/Sprint would start wanting to charge you a monthly fee for services that would be comparable to a cellphone with data plan.

At that point the Kindle would basically turn into an oversized iPhone with a one hundred dollar plus monthly phone bill.
