Amazon invests in Andy Rubin's Essential

It's being reported by the Wall Street Journal that Amazon is among the companies which contributed to Essentials $300 million coffers [http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/08/09/wsj-essentials-investors-include-amazon-release-date-phone-announced-next-week/]. They also reveal that Best Buy and Amazon will be retail partners for the upcoming phone launch. The best bit of news, though, comes in the form of a set of dates. Although we still have no idea when the phone will launch (Essential has now very much overshot its 'end of the month' June prediction), Essential president Niccolo de Masi says, "I will give you an exact date in a week."

Those are some serious investors for Andy Rubin's new devices company.
