    I was hoping for some kind of subsidized data program for Prime video and music, but I guess that's a no go.

    And no Prime wireless service, unless Bezos has one more thing up his sleeve.

    So the $200 on-contract Amazon Fire Phone translates to $650 unlocked for a 32GB model.

    (Amazon didn't share that unlocked pricing on stage though.)

    Bezos: I hope you guys have as much fun using this phone as we had building it. Thank you.
  • Roger Cheng 6/18/2014 7:05:16 PM
    And with that, we're done.
  • James Martin 6/18/2014 7:05:26 PM
  • Roger Cheng 6/18/2014 7:05:31 PM
    That's a wrap folks.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/18/2014 7:06:01 PM
    Thanks for joining us! We're going to go check it out!
  • Roger Cheng 6/18/2014 7:08:03 PM
    Check back with CNET for all the details of the phone.
