I work for amazon and supposedly the phone will be significantly cheaper for employees just don't know by how much. they are also supposed to be giving us extra incentives for us to buy it.

A tablet is One thing But a Phone? This will have the same fate as the Facebook phone. Take away the Amazon apps and this thing is just another brick in the bunch. That 3d effect might be cool for a little bit but I bet i gets anouying after a while and its style looks Ugly. DONT GET ME STARTED IN THE PRICE. It is almost guaranteed it will be locked better than Ft. knox. Dont waste money on this Amazon, spend it on the Drones and just release the apps on Android, Windows and Apple Youll make more money that way.9

The facebook phone was incredibly half-assed compared to this.

The problem with the FP is price and price alone, everything else can be forgiven but the price is just batcrap insane, what were they thinking? did they not learn anything from the first iphone price? for the record that one too was at&t-only and it didn't sell well until apple dropped the price.

For amazon to get the marketshare it wants this thing should be $200 unlocked

Mine will be here today, paid $0 out the door went with the monthly ATT Next deal so I will at least only have to wait a year to upgrade again instead of two years as in the past. If it weren't for the free Amazon Prime for a year, since I do so much business with them each month, I probably would have passed on this phone but my S3 is messed up and I wanted something different. This will definitely be different.

So let me get this straight, for a $99 Prime account you went ahead and bought the biggest piece of crap phone and signed up for 2 years?

No, one year of prime + signed up for one year of ATT Next. Regardless, the phone is going back tomorrow since Amazon refuses to return my phone calls, answer my emails, and their "Mayday" button isn't working at the moment on said piece of **** phone.

Edit: and I haven't paid anything yet. I am returning this dogpile, if ATT wants to pro-rate me as part of their "Next" plan, they will be talking to my lawyers for teaming up with Amazon for this crap.
