A trustworthy source has now revealed that this has long been an open secret in Seattle, home of the two big companies, but has been dismissed by many insiders as a bad joke. For months, we have been hearing rumors that Amazon wants to give its OS a second chance. FireOS should get a successor and no longer rely on other operating systems. Bezos wants something of his own. The fact that they came into contact with Terry Myerson was more of a coincidence, which is due to the fact that both companies are based in Seattle and you inevitably always come across each other again.
There is also a talk of a new hardware assortment on Amazon. Bezos wants to finally offer its own smartphone and now its own PC. First, it wants to come out with its own laptop and even a successor to the Fire smartphone. The highlight of the new devices is to be a cross-device OS, which will be developed by Myerson. Codename of the project is “Door”. “Door ” will later run on all devices from Amazon and Amazon’s door into the Windows-dominated device world.
In order to guarantee the plans are implemented as fast as possible, Myerson is a Godsend for Amazon. He is supposed to bring along many ideas that Microsoft had repeatedly dismissed over the past 20 years as unworkable. He wants to try these on Amazon. The coming months should be exciting, even if it is already clear that the first Amazon devices with Door 1.0 will be released on April 1, 2019.
