Magic Leap — the Google-funded company creating a powerful new AR platform — is partnering with AT&T to help get its products in as many hands as possible when its ready for a consumer release.

In a press release that AT&T issued on Wednesday, July 11, CEO John Donovan said:

"AT&T is excited to pair our pioneering technologies, unmatched network, content platform, and vast customer ecosystem with Magic Leap's efforts to build the next generation of computing.

With this agreement, AT&T will be the "exclusive wireless distributor" of Magic Leap products in the United States once they're ready to be for an official launch.

In late-December last year, Magic Leap announced its first piece of hardware as the Magic Leap One — consisting of a headset, wireless controller, and a mini computer that powers the experience. Magic Leap One is currently being offered to developers and creators, and while a consumer version has yet to be announced, this partnership with AT&T shows that Magic Leap is getting everything set in place for when that day comes around.
