AT&T did not announce specifics regarding the G Watch's availability, including pricing and when the device will start to appear in stores. Instead, in a press release, the carrier said that the wearable wrist accessory will be arriving "in the coming weeks, and we look forward to sharing more details soon."

Somehow, AT&T will bloatware this some kind of way.

AT&T will put their globe branding on the bottom chin and Verizon will plaster the top chin but also include 4GLTE on the bottom chin.

Oh dear.. AT&T got its hooks in it. I don't like that I buy my phone from a carrier, but it is a necessary evil for now. But watch, tablet... never will I ever.

Probably $50 subsidy for a 2-year contract and tethering plan, claiming it's required to use the watch.
