Alltel Wireless has released a new LG phone that borrows a bit from the form factor the T-Mobile G1 / HTC Dream is famous for.
The new phone is called LG Tritan AX840 and it obviously has a touchscreen, plus a full QWERTY keyboard hidden underneath it. There’s also a weird-positioned d-pad that looks to be perfect for left-handers, but not for right-handers.
The display has 3 inches, but its resolution is not known (it’s probably QVGA or 240 x 400 pixels anyway).
Here’s what the LG Tritan looks like:
Its full specs include:
- EV-DO Rev A connectivity
- GPS (Alltel Navigation)
- Full Internet browser
- Voice recognition
- 3MP camera with video recording
- MicroSD card support
- 4.5 x 2.2 x 0.6 inches
- 5.0 ounces
After a $100 mail-in rebate, the LG Tritan costs $79.99 on contract. It can be purchased online and from Alltel’s stores across the US.
