Alltel gets QWERTY Freeform from Samsung
Samsung's Freeform handset has been added to the Alltel Wireless lineup. The entry level device has a 2.2-inch color display and a QWERTY keyboard, as well as customizable navigation keys that can take users to their favorite applications. Music playback capability is built-in, and users can send data wirelessly or hook up compatible wireless headsets or headphones through stereo Bluetooth.
Alltel's Navigation service is available, and users can browse the web as well. A microSDHC memory card slot lets users hold up to 16GB of data. The Freeform is available in teal and red wine at Alltel, though pricing and release dates have not been announced.
