Amazon is widely expected to unveil a new smartphone tomorrow, potentially equipped with sensors that track your eyes and shift the display’s perspective in three-dimensional ways. That may sound like an out-of-the-box approach to the handset space, but the retail giant is reportedly playing it safe in other ways. According to the Wall Street Journal, the phone’s availability may be initially limited to AT&T when it launches in September.

If Amazon were to agree to carrier exclusivity with anyone, AT&T would make the most sense. The two already have a relationship, with AT&T currently providing connectivity to Amazon’s Kindle devices. Any deal regarding the smartphone would be seen as an extension of the existing agreement.

As always, take the rumor with a grain of salt. It won’t be long before we have official confirmation.
