Amazon in talks with European carriers over smartphone

|By:, SA News Editor

After reporting yesterday that AT&T will be the exclusive provider in the U.S. for its new smartphone, Amazon (AMZN) is now in talks to determine who will be its provider in Europe.

The company has spoken to O2 (TEF) and Vodafone (VOD) in the U.K. If it chooses the latter, it would extend the two's relationship, as Vodafone provides the data plans shipped with the Kindle and the company's e-readers.

Amazon is set to reveal the smartphone rumored to feature a 3D display at an event in Seattle later today.
