AT&T to get Quickfire

A new handset from PCD, the cellular phone division of UTStarcom, is coming soon to AT&T, now branded under the Quickfire name, according to a Thursday Engadget report. Previously unveiled as the Knick, the Sidekick-like handset hides a full QWERTY keyboard behind its sliding color screen, and will support HSPA 3G data networks. It will support mobile TV and have assisted GPS capabilities and can navigate via AT&T's Navigator service.

Otherwise, the handset will include a 1.3-megapixel camera and A2DP Bluetooth support for headsets is present. The 35MB of built-in memory is bolstered by a microSD card slot. Preloaded applications include mobile e-mail with easy to set up Yahoo, AOL, AIM and Windows Live Mail accounts. XM Satellite Radio programming can also be received over the Internet.

The Quickfire handset is expected to become available at AT&T by the end of October, priced at nearly $100 with a two-year contract. It will reportedly be offered in silver, orange and green.
