The Amazon Web Services team is celebrating the launch of a new wallet.
The new wallet, called the Kindle X, was unveiled during the Amazon Prime Day keynote by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who described it as a “premium, modern, high-quality wallet.”
“It is designed to be an extension of our existing Kindle line and is built on top of Amazon’s existing security and security features,” Bezos said.
“It features a sturdy, comfortable leather strap with a built-in fingerprint reader, an easy-to-use NFC payment system, a large battery, a sturdy case, a built in case lock, a lock screen and more.”
The new Amazon Wallet, which can be used with Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet, is designed with security in mind, the company said.
The company’s wallet is also equipped with an integrated QR code scanner that lets users scan their phone’s QR code to access their funds.
The Amazon Kindle X also comes with the company’s new “Pay Later” app, which lets users pay for purchases using their credit card on Amazon’s website, and lets them store their Amazon purchases as a single wallet.
While the Amazon Wallet is now in beta, it will be available to all Amazon customers in the coming weeks.
