LG Swift now at Alltel

Alltel announced on Thursday that the LG Swift handset is now available for purchase at the wireless provider. The handset is the first from LG's line-up to use a next-generation keypad with what the company calls Fastap Press-to-Experience keys. Comprised of six raised one-touch access Quick Keys that act as shortcuts for Alltel Navigation, Alltel Shop, Email, Alarm Clock and Image Library features, the keys sit atop a traditional numeric keypad.

Apart from the new keypad, the Swift is a music phone with a dual speaker system, external music controls, and wireless headphone support via its Bluetooth compatibility. Music and photos or videos captured by the 1.3-megapixel camera can be stored on microSD cards up to 8GB in size. The Swift will support GPS, e-mail and web, as well as TV capabilities over EVDO data networks. XM Radio is likewise supported.

The LG Swift is available in red or blue, priced at $50 at Alltel Wireless after an online discount, $50 mail-in rebate and on a two-year contract.
