The Quickfire was made for AT&T by Personal Communications Devices and has a close resemblance to the ever so popular Sidekicks. The phone, which is available in orange, green and silver, is accompanied by a 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD card slot, 3G speeds and a 30 day trial of AT&T Navigator.
The QWERTY keypad device is able to display messages in portrait or landscape modes. By utilizing AT&T's 3G network, users can download music directly to their phones from Napster Mobile and eMusic Mobile.
The Quickfire is priced at $99.99 after a 2-year contract.
looks like a cool phone but why would it be only 1.3 megpixel? my voyager is 2 and the dare is 3.2 and so is the storm...why would they make the camera resolution so low?

yea and how big do you mean? if i send a 640X480 pic with a 1.3 mega camera and my voyager 2 mega to my email there is a 900000 percent difference. of course on a little screen there is no difference between the two but if you send it to ur comp there is a huge difference!!! still 1.3 megapixels is in the past!!!

Okay, it's not a big deal. Seriously. Do you know that there are actually some phones that still have a simple VGA camera? Anyway, how many megapixels do you really need on a phone? As long as it can take pictures and you can tell what the picture is, how many megapixels it is doesn't really matter.

I don't know, ask Apple or LG! The point of having a camera on a phone is just for quick snapshots (well, at least...that's what I think). It's just that people are now so used to having 2, 3.2, 5, or 8 MP camera phones, they just shun VGA or 1.3 MP camera phones. But like I said, it depends on the customer that buys the phone. And for me, I don't really need a phone with a high megapixel camera, but it's just a nice addition IMO.

ATT has the best lineup now. Hands down. It will get even better when the 5mp Eternity launches.

I've been waiting for a decent texting phone from at&t for a while now. I'm not fond of and Blackberrys or that Samsung propel. I've got my mind set on this or the HTC Touch Pro. They both seem sturday and sufficient for needs. Can't wait to get my hands on one or the other.

Pound for pound, Sprint has the best line up of phones around. ATT and VZW kill their phones by having inferior GUIs and taking out huge chunks of memory from their phones. Long live the Yellow and Black!

Yeah, I think I'm going to buy this phone in silver. It is .7" thick. Not as bad as my virgin mobile that was .9" thick.
