Alltel LG Glimmer Launch

Having been preempted by the phone manufacturer itself, Alltel today quickly followed up by announcing official launch details for the LG Glimmer, its first media-focused touchscreen phone. The cell provider confirms the media-focused design, which is controlled primarily by its 2.8-inch display but slides out a keypad for dialing by hand. In addition to its media player and microSD slot, the Glimmer is also fast enough to drive 3D games and supports video capture as well as still photos from its 2-megapixel camera. Assisted GPS mapping is supported through a custom Alltel app.

The LG phone also plays host to multiple extra Alltel-specific features despite its Linux-based, Flash-driven OS, including live streaming video over 3G through Axcess TV. An actual release for the Glimmer starts well ahead of LG's predicted 12-day window and will see the phone in retail shops and online as of Thursday the 13th, when it will sell for $250 after factoring in a $100 rebate and a two-year contract.
