While this service is exclusive for Prime users, other users can also give it a try for free. Amazon has a 30 day trial period wherein you can try out Amazon Prime including music for free. At the end of the trial period you will need to pay subscription fee of $99 (approximately Rs 5,946) per year or a discounted $39 (approximately Rs 2,342) for students
As mentioned above, the service has gone live ahead of Amazon s smartphone launch on June 18. Though the website mentions that the service is compatible with all kinds of smartphones and tablets, there are currently no apps available for iOS or Android. Amazon might first launch the app on its own smartphone next week and then make the app available on other platforms.
Speaking of Amazon s smartphone, it will feature a 4.7-inch 720p display, Snapdragon processor, and 2GB of RAM. The user interface is however the smartphone s talking point. It will boast a unique 3D interface without the need for 3D glasses. It will use a host of IR cameras on the front that will track the user s head movements to adjust the UI.
