    The Amazon hype machine is in culmination mode today as their new Fire Phone officially went on sale today. It's exclusively on AT&T for now, and we don't expect that to change for some time (if ever). The phone has been up for pre-order for a while now, and folks who did so should have found it on their doorsteps either yesterday or today.

    As we reported previously the Fire Phone is $199.99 on a new contract, although that also includes one year of Amazon Prime at no extra cost. Just as a teaser, we decided to share this iFixit teardown. The digital device surgeons over there had their way with the Fire Phone and pinned it with a 3 out of 10 repairability score.

    Check out the skinny in the video above and here are a couple of useful links as well.
