AT&T pulling Quickfire from shelves

ATT Pulling Quickfire

AT&T is pulling its Quickfire messaging phone at least temporarily from shelves, Electronista can confirm through an AT&T spokesman. The company has issued a note asking stores to pull the PCD-made slider from shelves and demo booths due to quality concerns and hasn't said if or when it expects the device to return.

What reasons have prompted the withdrawal are equally unknown, though the Quickfire is relatively advanced and includes both a Sidekick-style slider as well as a touchscreen for the bulk of its input. PCD hasn't commented on the change but is a veteran of phones, having made devices for years while it was part of UTStarCom up until last year.

The spokesman's comments confirm a rumor floated by BGR this morning.
