Alltel this morning took its turn at unveiling an exclusive handset and launched the AX8600. The LG-made flip phone stresses its bold color and comes in any one of three colors, including the pictured Apple Green as well as Marine Blue and Gold. Regardless of the look, each has external music keys, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and a microSD slot for storage. Completely unique to Alltel is the use of its custom Celltop widget-style interface for checking data on the road.
Ready to ship, the AX8600 is on offer for as little as $100 with a two-year plan but can also be had for $280 from Alltel without a contract.
