Amazon smartphone exclusive carrier named in report

There is a special event happening tomorrow, where it is believed that the Amazon smartphone will become official. We’ve been hearing about the device for years now, and it looks like June 18 will be the date to look out for. The fate of the Amazon smartphone depends on many variables: aside from specs, and price, carrier interest is also crucial for the survival of the device.

According to the Wall Street Journal, AT&T will be the American carrier which will exclusively carry the Amazon smartphone. Another, earlier, WSJ report claims that the selling point of the device will be its capabilities to display glasses-free 3D content, something which other manufacturers like HTC and LG have experimented with years ago.

AT&T is also the wireless carrier for Kindle products, so an exclusive on the Amazon smartphone would be a logical move for the carrier in its hopes to attract even more customers. We’re not sure if that would benefit Amazon as well. What do you think?
