Alltel Gets Super Thin Samsung Wafer With XM Radio MobileS

Alltel's not usually known for getting cutting-edge handsets, but it may be time for that to change as the slick-looking Samsung Wafer SCH-R510 heads their way. The phone has some interesting features, with the celltop widget system, XM Radio Mobile, Axcess TV and Axcess mobile Guide.

Elsewhere, it has a 1.3-megapixel camera, weighs 2.7 oz., and will cost you $49 after a $50 mail-in rebate. It qualifies for Alltel's My Circle as well, which is their all you can call for free plan. A nice, anorexic addition to the Alltel lineup without any of the associated health problems.
