LG Scoop hits Alltel

The LG Rumor, previously available on Sprint, is now being carried by Alltel Wireless as the Scoop. Superficially a basic candybar phone, a QWERTY keyboard slides out from underneath, allowing easier e-mail and text messaging, as well as instant messaging through AIM or Yahoo Messenger. A specific Alltel feature is support for Axcess Voice2TXT, which can convert voicemail into text messages, saving them in the inbox.

The actual hardware of the phone includes a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a microSD slot that supports cards up to 4GB in size, primarily for the phone's music playback software. The Scoop is currently on sale for $60, after a $40 mail-in rebate; this applies either to select existing customers, or those signing up to a new two-year contract.
