Alltel adopts HTC Touch

The latest American carrier to adopt HTC's Touch smartphone is Alltel Wireless. There the phone can download games and other applications through Axcess, download themes and ringtones from Magmic, and sync photos with a PC via Sharpcast. Additionally, Handmark Pocket Express provides news and weather updates, while Digby can be used to buy items from the likes of FTD and Barnes & Noble. Voicemails can be converted to text through Voice2TXT.

The Touch is equipped with Windows Mobile 6.0, and is famous mainly for an interface that imitates the finger gestures used on Apple's iPhone. It is also equipped with stereo Bluetooth, a microSD slot and a two-megapixel camera, as well as Microsoft's Mobile Office suite. The phone is currently on sale from Alltel for $200 after a mail-in rebate and a two-year contract.
