IoT: AT&T LTE-M Button with AWS

AT&T’s LTE-M Button is basically a programmable 4G Amazon Dash Button for businesses | TechCrunch

"LTE-M Button Unlike all of the pre-programmed Dash Buttons, this AT&T and AWS Web Services joint ships as a clean slate. A company buys the thing and programs tasks in using Amazon’s AWS IOT service. The idea here is that instead of, say, buying a box of Goldfish crackers, businesses can order office supplies or put in some other sort of work request by hitting a button.
The other big differentiator here is the inclusion of LTE-M — IOT-focused 4G. That means businesses will be able to use the buttons where there’s no WiFi.
special promotion cost is $30 for the first 5,000 sold. That’s several times the standard $5 price for Amazon’s wide range of branded WiFi-only Dash Buttons"

"Promotional offer is limited to the first 5,000 units sold (whether to one customer or multiple customers) starting in the 1st quarter of 2018. Regular pricing of $34.99 will apply to all units thereafter."
