    No thanks! ANYTHING locked to at&t is a no no for me.

    I was on the fence about whether Amazon could put together a good phone, and whether it would appeal to me (considering I've enjoyed my Kindle Fire for a while now)...

    This didn't just push me off the fence, it knocked down the entire fence. Anything that gets tied to AT&T exclusively is dead to me. Tying it to ANY specific carrier is the kiss of death, really, but my (and my company's) experiences with AT&T have assured I'll never touch anything of theirs.
