Amazon has just released a new wireless portal, amazonwireless.com, where they try to simplify the process of buying a mobile device. 

They have signed up the two biggest US carriers, AT&T and Verizon, and have most of the devices that each carrier sells on their own website.  Tmobile and Sprint are said to be coming soon. 

However, one phone in particular is missing from the AT&T microsite: the iPhone.   Why?  Walmart and BestBuy sell the iPhone, why can’t Amazon?
