AT&T ships Quickfire

Announced roughly one month ago, AT&T's Quickfire started shipping on Monday. The PCD-made phone features a sliding touchscreen that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard to make text messaging and typing quicker, along with a 1.3-megapixel camera. The handset supports HSPA-based 3G data networks and can take advantage of AT&T's Napster Mobile and eMusic Mobile download services. The handset includes an aGPS sensor and can deliver driving direction via AT&T's Navigator service.

The Quickfire lets users read messages in a portrait or landscape orientation, without having to slide the device open. Other features include stereo Bluetooth support, 35MB of built-in memory and a microSD memory card slot. Yahoo, AOL, AIM and Windows Live Mail accounts are supported.

The AT&T Quickfire is now available in orange, green and silver, priced at just shy of $150 with a two-year contract and mail-in rebate. Buyers will also get a $50 AT&T Promotion Card that can be used to pay the wireless bill or pick up extra features.
