AT&T Quickfire pulled from shelves
A phone call placed to our local AT&T wireless office confirms the report that the AT&T Quickfire messenger phone has been pulled from Ma Bell's line-up. When asked for a reason, the rep answered that the device did not meet the standards of the carrier. The handset is manufactured for AT&T by Personal Communications Devices and is equipped with a 1.3MP camera, microSD slot and a sliding QWERTY keyboard that is similar to the design of T-Mobile's Sidekick. The phone, which runs on AT&T's 3G network, was launched this past November. There was no word on whether or not the model would return to AT&T.
