Alltel Carries Treo 700wx
Alltel today says it has added the Treo 700wx to its lineup. The provider is the second to carry the upgrade to the existing 700w Windows Mobile phone, and primarily extends the active talk time from 4.5 to 5 hours in addition to software refinements. In Alltel trim, the phone supports the network's EVDO broadband and keeps all its existing Bluetooth functionality, including the option of serving as a Bluetooth dial-up modem for remote locations. The phone is available now at a retail price of $670, but drops to as little as $350 after rebates when joined to two years of data and phone service.
