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
-- 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:

Unfortunate but expected. Amazon has had a strong partnership with AT&T for years. Their original Kindles used AT&T's 3G network.
And as much as we may dislike/like AT&T, they do have 100 million customers that can get this phone.

Plus the fact that iPhone started exclusively on AT&T, and it didn't seem to hurt them any. People will buy, and use, any phone more because of the way they perceive its performance, than by what carrier it's on.
Well, at least people that don't post on DT will! ;)
