LG Swift lands in Alltels lineup

A new LG handset was announced for Alltel (and in the long run, I suppose, Verizon) this morning. Don’t let its appearance fool you, my friends – this is no standard flip phone. This one will change your life.

Okay, fine. It won’t change your life. In fact, with its defining features being a 1.3 megapixel camera and Bluetooth, it’s all pretty standard. It’s the first Alltel handset to feature Fastap “Press-to-Experience” shortcut keys tucked between the numbers on the keypad, which I suppose is pretty exciting if you’ve never owned a cell phone before. You can nab one in blue or red at Alltel.com or any Alltel spot for $49.99 beginning today.
