    There are two new handsets coming out on or around April 12th

    (1) A new camera flip phone from Samsung the u340 Snap which is similar to T-Mobile's t619. It will be $9.99 with a $10 mail-in rebate on a 24-month agreement and $79.99 on a 12-month contract.

    (2) And The Samsung r510 Wafer which has EV-DO, Celltop and a mini-SD slot. It is like Samsung's Trace on T-Mobile. It will be $69.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and $179.99 on a 12-month contract. It is thinner than the RAZR and the LG AX8600.

    Yeah I saw these on cnet when they review the CTIA stuff... or something like that. The u340 is already being carried by Verizon Wireless. The r510 is basically the Trace aka (SLVR Clone) I wonder if this means Alltel wont be getting the Moto SLVR. I saw that Verizon had it listed on their website.. so either they will get the SLVR and Alltel will get the r510 or Verizon will go ahead and get the r510 as well later and have the SLVR to. That would kinda figure seeing as there is nothing about Alltel getting the Moto RAZR Maxx and Verizon is getting that exclusive for 6mons starting April 24. Wonder what else Alltel has on the path for us over the next few mons.. hopefully some good phones. I bet they phase out one of the older Samsung phones as soon as these two come out.

    If that is true that would not shock me in the least little bit. If there is one thing Alltel is known for actually getting right and that you can count your stake on its that they can, do, and usually will find a reason to delay releasing a phone. More times out of non they choose to delay them right before the actual release date. Sometimes it is software issues, other times they are doing it as a ploy to get more money or something... either way all I can say is BOOOOOO! why dont you break out of the mold this time and actually release these things when your stores were first told and have been telling ppl they would be released... pretty soon no one is going to believe a word AT says when they tell ppl they are releasing a new phone.

    Alltel Corp. has added a news release to its Investor Relations website.

    Title: Alltel Wireless Introduces One of the Thinnest Phones in the U.S. - The Wafer(TM)
    Date: 5/3/2007 8:23:00 AM

    New Ultra-Thin Phone from Samsung Exclusively Available at Alltel
    LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 3, 2007--Alltel Wireless,
    America's largest network, today announced The Wafer(TM), one of the
    thinnest, sleekest phones available on the U.S. market today, is now
    available exclusively at shopalltel.com and Alltel Wireless retail
    locations.
    The Wafer (SCH-r510) by Samsung, offers customers the cool
    features they have come to expect out of their wireless phones in a
    quarter-inch form that can slip easily into a pocket, purse or the
    palm of your hand.
    The Wafer, weighing only 2.7 oz., features XM Radio Mobile, Axcess
    TV and Axcess Mobile Guide. The Wafer is preloaded with Axcess Search,
    which allows customers to search for ringtones, wallpaper or other
    information on their phones by simply holding down the pound key.
    Other features include a 1.3 megapixel camera with video capabilities,
    an MP3 player, an expandable memory slot, Stereo Bluetooth Headset
    capability and Alltel's award-winning Celltop technology.
    "Alltel is committed to accommodating our customers and their
    always-on-the-go lifestyles," said Wade McGill, senior vice president
    of product management for Alltel Wireless. "The Wafer delivers an
    amazing array of fashion, functions and features in a groundbreaking
    ultra-thin form."
    "The Wafer represents the new era of form and function for phones
    in the United States," said Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president of
    Samsung Telecommunications America. "The handset demonstrates that a
    phone as thin as a few credit cards can deliver all of the features
    that consumers have come to expect of today's high-end phones."
    The phone is equipped with Alltel's exclusive Celltop technology,
    which is free-of-charge and features 11 pre-installed and downloadable
    "cells." Each cell is a category-specific half screen comprised of
    graphics and text that provides shortcuts for wireless users to
    navigate through information and applications including: call log,
    weather, news, baseball, basketball, football, rodeo, stocks, text
    messaging inbox and ringtones. Celltop recently was named "Best in
    Show" at the Second Annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards at CTIA
    Wireless 2007, the world's largest event for the wireless industry.
    The Wafer is now available at Alltel Wireless retail stores and at
    shopalltel.com for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. This discounted
    price is available when new customers sign-up for a two-year service
    agreement as well as existing eligible customers on qualifying rate
    plans. Customers who purchase The Wafer and are on a qualifying
    calling plan are able to join "My Circle," Alltel's exclusive feature
    that allows customers to choose who they call for free - any 10

    their contract.
