Alltel Wireless Debuts the HTC Snap for $79.99 with 1-Year Contract
The HTC Snap is now available from Alltel Wireless. Debuted last April by HTC, the HTC Snap includes international roaming and Wi-Fi capabilities. The handset is Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A capable, which makes it a perfect phone for Alltel’s advanced 3G network, providing faster uploads and downloads, streaming audio and video, and speedier browsing.
Users will enjoy a familiar operating system – Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard – with the HTC Snap and a four-row QWERTY keyboard, perfect for typing e-mails to business colleagues and sending text messages to friends. The handset comes preloaded with Microsoft® Outlook Mobile and a new feature called ‘Inner Circle’ that allows customers to prioritize messages from a select number of contacts across multiple e-mail accounts.
For photo and video lovers, the HTC Snap is MMS picture and video ready and comes equipped with a 2.0 megapixel camera that includes digital zoom. Storing videos, photos and music has never been easier – 256 MB of on-board storage comes standard and a microSD external memory slot extends the storage to up to 32 GB with an optional memory card. Customers also will appreciate the handset’s Bluetooth 2.0 stereo capabilities and the strong battery life – 318 minutes of continuous talk time.
Included in the HTC Snap package is a multivoltage AC Adapter, USB cable, headset, a 3-in-1 audio adapter and four international AC plugs for those traveling outside of the United States.
The HTC Snap smartphone is available for $79.99 after a $70 mail-in rebate and with a qualifying 1-year service contract. Alltel continues to be the only major wireless carrier to offer 2-year postpaid handset pricing to those signing 1-year contracts, creating enhanced flexibility and greater choice for customers. Customers must also select one of the Alltel Wireless Smart Choice packs that include national voice minutes, unlimited Internet browsing and e-mail, and “My Circle.” Smart Choice packs begin at $69.99.
The HTC Snap smartphone and 1-year contract option is available only to customers in the 91 cellular market areas (CMAs) that Verizon Wireless is required to divest, which will continue to operate as Alltel Wireless until the sale agreements with AT&T and Atlantic Tele-Network are approved by the Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission.
