Dallas, Texas 09/05/2014 (FINANCIALSTRENDS) – Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) the largest of the US-based ecommerce players is on new battle turf with the almighty internet-of-things Google Inc, on the matter of delivery of products.

As Drones catch the imagination of technology players as the means to provide the last mile connectivity, such as Facebook’s recent connectivity in remote Africa for job hunts; drone has primarily tickled the likes of Amazon.com, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMZN) as  a delivery media for its various products.

In the meanwhile, Google has a brand new project on hand, the PROJECT WING, which relates to testing flights of over 30 drones. As with everything else at Google the key-word here is to ensure that the drones are equipped and built for delivery of products in a matter of minutes.

So where does that leave Amazon’s  Prime Air delivery copters.

Apparently in the driving seat!

For, Google Inc, the experiment with Project Wings has been ongoing for the past 2 years and limited by the design of the aircraft, which borders on the ‘unconventional’ for the design lends itself towards a tail-sitter. Technically this means the drone is able to take-off alike an helicopter, and then begins to rotate to a horizontal, plane-position by circling around.

On the other hand, Amazon.com, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMZN) drones are all kitted-out to do as all smart airmail and parcel deliveries helicopters do, albeit on a smaller and miniature scale, with 8 propellers, which are similar to helicopters.

With Project Wing led by robot scientist from MIT, the futuristic drone is all set to change the paradigm of drone delivery systems.

However, for the present, Amazon has definitely set the precedent with its top-line Prime Air Drones scorching a fast pace on the air delivery horizon.
