Alltel gets Gling, Tour

Wireless provider Alltel announced on Thursday that it will soon offer the Samsung Glint and BlackBerry Tour handsets, with the Glint making its debut at any provider. The basic clamshell sports a VGA camera that has a night shot mode, a web browser, and Bluetooth 2.0. There is SMS, MMS and picture messaging functionality, and Alltel will offer the handset in pink or blue.

Alltel subscribers can also customize their Glints via the Alltel Shop application that lets them download wallpapers, ringtones and games. The lithium ion battery is said to provide users with six hours of talk time.

The BlackBerry Tour has also been added to Alltel's lineup and retains its standard-fare features. It uses Alltel's 3G network, has a 3.2-megapixel camera with image stabilization, built-in GPS and 256MB of integrated memory, which is expandable thanks to a microSDHC memory card. Applications can be downloaded through BlackBerry App World.

While Alltel hasn't announced a date or pricing for the Glint, the Tour will be priced at $200 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a 1-year contract with a minimum monthly fee of $70.
