Alltel nabs Motorola VE465
Carrier Alltel Wireless has adopted a new Motorola phone for sale, the VE465. Though not intended as a high-end device, the phone does sport RAZR-like styling in a clamshell design, and EVDO support for faster downloads through the likes of Alltel's Music Connect service. Bluetooth A2DP support is built-in as well, along with GPS navigation.
The phone is limited to dual-band UMTS in terms of voice, but includes other features such as external storage for media files, and a 1.3-megapixel camera with 4x digital magnification. Talk time is rated at 3.5 hours, with a seven-day standby battery life. Pricing and availability were not disclosed as of press time.
