The e-commerce giant Amazon has launched a simple web browser named ‘Internet: fast, lite and private’ for the slower networks in India.

Amazon’s take on an Android phone (well, sort of), the Fire Phone, previously priced at $650, has just been dropped all the way down to 99 cents, along with a contract of course.
