AT&T bound Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom image leaks
Based on the leaked image from the ever-reliable @evleaks, the Galaxy S4 Zoom will indeed find its way to AT&T. There is no pricing information, nor do we know when we can expect the Zoom to make an appearance at your local AT&T retail location. Given the timing of this leak though, we expect it will be available in time for the holiday shopping season.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is akin to a compact camera with smartphone functionality, bridging a gap between the Galaxy S4, S4 mini and Galaxy Camera. If you have read and watched our review of the Galaxy S4 Zoom, you will recall it does a fine job of shooting high-quality pictures as well as provide good value as a “converged” device of sorts.
The AT&T version of the device will obviously have some AT&T sourced apps (aka bloatware) that encourage data usage to back up your media, like AT&T Locker, which provides 5GB of free cloud storage (though AT&T has been known to offer promotions providing quite a bit more space from time to time). That may come in handy as the 16MP camera with 10x optical zoom does a fine job of capturing the memories.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom was retailing for roughly £370 in the UK before taxes (about $589). While no pricing is yet known, that will probably translate to $199 or less on a two-year contract or mid-$20 range on AT&T Next. Will the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom make your holiday shopping list?

Are you one of their customers, like me, who is fed up with their crap, but lacks good alternatives in your area, or is it the fact that they seem to be grabbing all these exclusives?

The latter mate. Devices should be on all carriers, not just one.

Really? I'm getting sick and tired of Sprint. We're transferring to ATT next month in hopes of greener pastures. I was going to switch us over to Verizon but I like having swappable SIM cards and Nexus compatibility.

Switch to T-Mobile - unlimited LTE + no contract. Only go with AT&T if you travel outside of major cities frequently.
