Alltel Wireless will get the GLIMMER by LG, which is an all-touch phone and surely looks good. This one takes the 3.9 x 2 x 0.6 inches slim slider design of the AT&T Shine but instead of 2.2” display and a few keys below, fits 2.8” wide-angle unit with 240x400 pixels resolution! From the images leaked (which are from official LG press sheet) it can be seen that the home screen has the typical for LG shortcuts: menu, calls, messaging and phonebook, but we’ve no idea what the rest of the interface will look like … we hope Alltel won’t disappoint us, and will bring LG’s UI found in phones such as the Viewty, Prada, and the KF700, or at least a user experience somewhat close to theirs. Similar to the latter model, the new phone slides open to reveal standard numeric keypad, for dialing a number or text input.
The LG GLIMMER’s main selling point is the combination of a large touch display (with haptic feedback - vibration) and a very well looking slim slider design, with metal parts. It is a CDMA/EV-DO phone (of course) with a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD slot and Stereo Bluetooth.
