    Rumor has it this phone is indeed on the way very soon.

    Info: It promises a 2.8-inch touch-screen display, a slider keypad, a 2.0-megapixel camera, a microSD slot, Bluetooth, and EV-DO. And since it's called the Glimmer, we expect it to be one very shiny and eye-catching device as well. No official news from Alltel or LG just yet, but the ad looks pretty legit, so we should expect to see this coming out soon.

    Is it based on Windows Mobile or is it just a plain phone?

    Alltel's LG Glimmer is real -- LG says so

    The rumored LG Glimmer for Alltel has now been confirmed by way of LG itself, and while there's still no sight of the phone on the regional's own site, the AX830 moniker that the beautiful piece bears -- and the fact that Alltel's name is specifically mentioned in LG's press release -- pretty much says it all. The company calls out the Glimmer as basically a Shine with a touchscreen, which seems like a pretty accurate representation and a good 30,000 foot overview of everything LG's been trying to do in the marketplace for the past 18 months or so.

    Despite LG's own lack of insight into the phone's launch, we've independently heard through the grapevine that Alltel will be launching the Glimmer in just two days, the 13th. It'll go for $250 on a two-year contract after rebates, and sorry, Alltel employees -- there's going to be a two-week delay before you can buy your own to ensure that there are plenty to go around for customers. What a rip! Follow the break for Alltel's information.

    [Via Unwired View, thanks Milo]

    On Thursday, March 13, 2008, Alltel will launch the new LG Glimmer (AX830) handset.
    Pricing Information:

    Non-contract price: $419.99
    One-year price: $409.99
    Two-year price: $349.99, with a $100.00 mail-in rebate, resulting in a final price of $249.99 Prepaid price: $299.99
    Features:

    Sleek touch screen
    Hidden slide-out keypad for easy dialing Music player with Customizable Equalizer (supports MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+) 2.0 mega-pixel camera with video Pre-loaded with Alltel Navigation, RealTone JukeBox, and Axcess TV Expandable memory slot GPS capable The LG Glimmer is available through all channels including CDF (Customer Direct Fulfillment).
    Alltel employees will be eligible to purchase the LG Glimmer two weeks after the launch date to make sure there is enough product available for our Customers.

    I like the Glimmer much more than the Scoop or the AX565. I'd almost consider getting a Glimmer if it weren't:

    A) An LG
    B) Called "Glimmer" (shudders)

    I wish we could go back to numeric names for phones or, at least, have cool names like 'RAZR' or something. "Scoop?" "Glimmer?" "EnV?" These are not good names for devices.

    MOTOhooligan, (respectfully) What exactly is soooo cool about phones that go by the name of RAZR, KRZR, ROKR, RIZR anyway?

    It was unique, at the time anyway. I think KRZR and RIZR are about as dumb as Glimmer and Scoop. I get why marketing people want phones to have names, rather than numeric designations but I still miss the days where phones had numbers, not names.

    v60? Yes, please.

    I agree but there certain names that I like and are unique, eg. PEBL - remember the Moto site with the simulation. Blackjack - I think that name is unique and suits the phone very well as does the SLVR. Then there is busload of names that are definitely asinine. Although the "green EnV" appeals to me. :D


    Hey maybe we should start a thread/poll on cellphone names.

    Blackjack is probably the best name for a mobile device ever. I like Q, also. It's mysterious. PEBL was cool because it was very appropriate but the Glimmer, while being an insanely awesome phone (though I wish it had a physical QWERTY keyboard) still has a stuipd name.

    I think I'll just start calling it by it's numeric designation, AX830.

    "I sure do like the AX830."
    "The what?"
    "[Mutters under breath] The Glimmer."

    :lmao:

    i got a couple in today, other than the weird little stylus that comes with the phone, I like it... If I had to go with a regular phone, it would probably be this one or a scoop.
