John Legere just can't help but get in a few digs at AT&T once again

T-Mobile US CEO John Legere is never one to back down from hogging the spotlight. After all, this is the same man that crashed an AT&T after-party at CES and routinely takes to Twitter (and his blog) to bash the competition.
 
Today, Legere pointed his criticism towards today’s confirmed news that Amazon’s first smartphone will be an AT&T exclusive. Legere just couldn’t hold back his frustrations and went off a multi-tweet rant lambasting the partnership. He even brought up Facebook’s failed partnership with AT&T for the HTC First, stating, “Remember when the Facebook phone was discounted to 99cents? So like, the whole time it was available on [AT&T].”
 
Legere also vented with the following tweets:


 
 
One can’t help but think that this bravado is all sour grapes, as Legere would likely be screaming from the hilltops if T-Mobile won Amazon exclusivity. With that said, it’s at least interesting to sit back and watch a tech CEO that isn’t afraid to speak his mind without being strangled immediately by his “handlers.”

If it's anything like the deal AT&T made with Apple for the original iPhone exclusivity, it's because AT&T was willing to subsidize the full cost of the phone.
