T-Mobile's Legere "hopes" that Amazon's smartphone won't have the same fate as AT&T's exclusive Facebook phone
Legere also tweeted this: “Let's hope Amazon doesn't fall victim to the AT&T curse that is the Facebook phone.” As you may remember, last year AT&T and Facebook teamed up to release the HTC First, which came pre-installed with Facebook Home. The phone was a flop, and it’s still available at AT&T’s website (for free on contract). We’re pretty sure that Amazon’s handset will have more to offer than the ill-fated Facebook phone - though, of course, that remains to be seen.
Amazon is hosting a press event tomorrow, on June 18, and it will most likely reveal its smartphone then. The device reportedly has an innovative 3D UI that's “unlike anything else.” We’ll be here to let you know all about it handset as soon as official details are available.
