Alright, the Alltel Touch (see our Hands-On here) is officially the best of the Touch devices available today. More memory and power than the GSM version (though it does lack WiFi), smaller than the just-introduced-to-the-US Touch Dual, less likely to force you to use crapware than the Sprint Touch, and has a 4th side to the TouchFLO Cube, unlike the Verizon Touch.
Oh, here's one more reason: Alltel has already managed to crank out a ROM Update (opens in new tab) for the little guy. The update adds some sweetness:
- Adds EVDO Rev. A capability for faster download and upload speeds
- Improves Bluetooth performance, fixing connectivity issues with some headsets and other devices.
- Adds ability to receive video messages.
That last point must grate on Sprint users just a little bit, eh? Maybe someday you'll get MMS. Meanwhile Alltel folks have everybody else beat.
Wait, no GPS??
Just too bad Alltel's service stinks for such a nice phone
Odd, I'm holding a pro right now and I have wifi and awesome fucking coverage.
