SEATTLE, Wa. - Amazon's first ever smartphone The Fire Phone launched in July. Too bad it seems like Fire sales have turned to ice.

Only 35,000 Fire phones were sold, forcing Amazon to write off $170 million!

Sounds like poor reviews cooled off sales, too.

The device had an average rating of 2.1 out of 5 stars, and poor app selection had a lot to do with that.

That's one "tough call" for Amazon, and any more deals like this and the whole business could go up in flames!
