Samsung Wafer at Alltel
Alltel is today boasting of having one of the thinnest phones available in the US: the Samsung Wafer, also known as the R510, has arrived and brings the style of the T-Mobile Trace to Alltel's CDMA network. Weighing only 2.7 ounces, the slim candybar phone still holds a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and a microSD slot for media storage. In Alltel form, it also brings the provider's widget-like Celltop layer for checking news, weather, and other data over EVDO broadband.
The Wafer sells for as little as $50 when paired with a $50 rebate and a two-year service plan; it can also be had outside of a contract for $240.
