LG's Chocolate flip has been on Verizon since late last year, but Alltel seems to be the first provider to get colored versions of these things. Available in blue, green, and puke, these AX8600s are going to be $50 after rebate and soul-binding contracts.

The Alltell versions are the same as the one on Verizon, featuring the same lousy electrostatic keys on the outside. On the whole, we're not big fans of keys like these because they just don't work very well, but they do look nice. But you know what they say, Alltell customers, beggers (we're talking about you) can't be choosers.
