Alltel Wireless offer Samsung Delve
Word on the street has it that Alltel and Verizon are about to merge, and this monster company will then be usurp AT&T as the largest mobile carrier in the US, combining the might of both 2nd and 5th place carriers into a single entity. Nevertheless, until the FCC approves of that move, we will still be covering news on individual phones released by either company, and the Samsung Delve is under the spotlight today. This handset will come with an intuitive interface and attractive touchscreen design, targeting message-centric folk who spend most of the time doing their talking via text messages and emails instead of voice communications.
The Samsung Delve comes with a virtual QWERTY keyboard and tactile feedback to make input easier, and will boast Samsung’s very own TouchWiz interface. The TouchWiz interface brings together specially concocted widgets that enable users to customize and personalize their phone, virtually making each phone as individualistic as possible. These widgets will take on a familiar ring, as they can be dragged and dropped onto the main display, offering users instant access to their favorite functions at the touch of a finger. Of course, with the help of haptic feedback, you can then be sure of whether you have made a selection or not.
Other features on the Samsung Delve include an integrated MP3 player, a 2 megapixel camera with video capture capability, Bluetooth connectivity, a microSD memory card slot, a 3.5mm headset jack and comes with Alltel Pic Transfer, Alltel Mobile Advisor, City Id, Collapse Chaos and Wallpaper Universe pre-loaded. How much do you have to pay in all if you want to bring the Samsung Delve home? Well, it will retail for $199.99 after a $100 mail in rebate for a new 2-year contract, and you can pick it up from retail stores and at shopalltel.com from November 6 onwards.
