If you want Amazon's upcoming smartphone, we hope you like AT&T's network

Amazon’s first smartphone is set to be publicly unveiled tomorrow in Seattle, but The Wall Street Journal today confirmed one important detail about the device. According to its sources, Amazon’s smartphone will be an AT&T exclusive.
The arrangement with Amazon and AT&T is not exactly surprising, as the latter currently provides wireless data service to the former’s line of tablets and e-readers. Boy Genius Report first broke news of AT&T exclusivity back in April and stated that the phone would come with Prime Data, which appears to be an offshoot of AT&T’s Sponsored Data program.
We already know that device is said to feature an innovative 3D interface – also thanks to BGR -- courtesy of four front-facing infrared cameras that tracks a user’s head movement. Amazon’s teaser video, which shows the reaction of people using the device for the first time, definitely has us excited to actually use the device in person:

LOL... Lets tie this to the most hated carrier in the country. That should help get the word out.

Sprint is pathetic, but more in a hapless way, not the most hated.

I thought Verizon earned that title.

They're the most expensive and they do the most dickish things to their phone selection. I really don't see how they couldn't be the most hated.

Because the service is so damn good.

I hate their pricing and the way they do things, but damnit, when I have kick-ass 4G everywhere I go and never drop calls it's kind of hard to "hate" them.

Exactly... Verizon and AT&T are pretty equal as far as dickish behavior, but Verizon has better service to back it up LOL.

I seriously don't care though. If I were on my own non company account I would dump Verizon and go with T-Mo immediately, like right now, I would run to my car and speed like hell to the nearest T-Mo store LOL.

AT&T is the second largest cellular company in the US. And most polling shows it either one or two in customer satisfaction. You might hate them, but there is a reason they sell so many contracts.

Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot

Who is number #1 in (citizen) satisfaction?
