NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- AT&T will reportedly be the exclusive carrier for Amazon's new smartphone, which is expected to be unveiled on Wednesday.
(T) will be the exclusive carrier for Amazon's
(AMZN) new smartphone, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.
AT&T already provides wireless service to Amazon's Kindle tablets and e-readers. The arrangement could give AT&T a leg up in the competitive smartphone market, similar to the exclusive deal it had with Apple
when the iPhone was released in 2007. BGR
reported that a big potential selling point of the phone could be a unique wireless data plan -- call "Prime Data" -- that will be offered alongside the device.
Amazon is expected to introduce the phone at a product event on Wednesday in Seattle. It already released a video on YouTube teasing the device, which is expected to be capable of displaying images that appear three-dimensional. According to reports, the phone will have several front-facing cameras that track the user's head movement and display the images so that they appear to be 3-D.
Amazon is said to be readying the phone for shipping by the end of September, in time for the holiday shopping season.
