    AT&T will be the exclusive carrier of the smartphone Amazon.com is expected to unveil Wednesday, according to the Wall Street Journal. And T-Mobile chief executive officer John Legere is none too happy about it.

    (Disclosure: Amazon.com chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos is the owner of the Washington Post.)

    In a series tweets posted Tuesday afternoon, Legere slammed the move -- likening the rumored decision to the flopped HTC First "Facebook phone" partnership and lamenting it as limiting consumer choice.


    Is Amazon limiting their market share with an AT&T exclusive? Is this phone multi-carrier worthy? What are your thoughts?

    Looks he was right. It was a flop.
