Samsung Delve - a TouchWiz phone for Alltel
We've received unofficial but pretty solid information about the Samsung Delve (R800), a TouchWiz candybar phone. According to the source, Delve will be offered by Alltel, which will begin pre-selling it starting next Thursday, October 30. The phone is scheduled for a full launch a week later, on November 06. It will be priced at $250 after a two-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate.

Features include:
  • 3" 240x400 touch screen
  • Dimensions of 4.57" x 2.17" x .48"
  • Full browsing capabilities
  • 2-megapixel camera
  • Email access via the new Alltel Mobile Email application
  • GPS Navigation
  • MP3 player

Even though the Delve is not a smartphone device, it will require a SmartChoice Pack because it has full HTML browser that will be billed as data.

We've previously heard about the Delve from a rumor that the
same device will come to US Cellular as well.

so 350 before am MIR? are u kidding? thats more expencive than the storm and it does less!! geesh..

3. Armo unregistered

so u pay 350 and get back 100 or do u pay 250 and get back 100? considering t-mobile is gunna have a phone just like this except with way better features like 5 mp cam compared to this ones 2 and MAYBE even a front cam. and they're offering it for 150 on a 2 year (after mail and rebates). same with at&t with the eternity but with a 3 mp and its gunna be 100 after mail and rebates. so i highly doubt this phones will be 250. if it is, they are retarded.

You pay $350 up front and get $100 mail in rebate making your final cost $250. It does require a Smart choice package though and a 2 year agreement.

which, by most reviews, is pretty bad

The Omnia is a WinMo phones so this is more like the Instinct with TouchWiz

No review says that the phone is bad..

If this phone is that expensive, imagine how much the omnia will be.

So, Alltel gets a bootleg version of the Omnia? Okay I guess.

The earpiece is too big. They could had made the screen bigger. Patiently waiting for the Samsung A867 from AT&T.

Verizon needed the omnia badly because all they have are dumb LG phones and without LG they'd be nothing. All these verizon fans love their chocolates and envy's targeted at 16 yr old kids. Oh and the Dare is highly overrated.

good for you...go get a Vu or a shine and shut your mouth

14. tfex unregistered

ill just get an iphone thats actually worth something. verizon fans just bash the iphone becauce they cant have it. the dare was their best answer to the iphone and it cant even come close. the storm will probably be another overrated piece of garbage as well... GOOD LUCK VERIZON!!!!

i dont understand y phones are still being released or dev'ed for alltel when vzw is going to aquire them soon......

15. unregistered

WOW VZW ARE ACQUIRING MARKETS OF ALLTEL NOT ENTIRE COMPANY!!!!!!!

34. unregistered

Verizon is acquiring all of Alltel as a company, but for that to pass through the FCC they have to divest some of their markets so they dont have monopolies in those areas. So the part of Alltel that gets divested will not still continue to run as alltel but will be purchased by a completely different company.

haha i just realized something. this looks like the offspring of the omnia and f480 but raised by the instinct thats why its a cdma phone with a 2mp cam. lmao

19. PUNISHER unregistered

And your point is???

41. Armo unregistered

my point is that it looks like the omnia and f480 and instinct all mixed. did u understand this time or maybe i should try spanish? how about french?

20. matrix2004 from HOFO unregistered

In response to #19, how many apps could u apply to ur corny LG dare? Also, i dont see 10 million dare's sold. Im just assuming u have verizon and worship the dare like every other fanboy. Thats their only remotely good phone anyway.

Who cares how many apps one can run on their phone when the phone in question is a shitty phone that one would be better off just getting an Ipod Touch.... Sorry for not being the first person on the fagfest which is the iPhone but that phone is the biggest piece of shit on the market for what it is. Even this website pretty much concluded the Instinct was an all around better Device then it is. So what does the iPhone have? Stupid customers whom fanboy for that junky phone because for some reason they feel like jumping on the forums and acting like tards so to justify themselves for buying that junk a** phone.... It also has a very nice touch screen and can do everything the ipod touch can do.. So how badly will the Storm kill the iPhone? Time will tell but whoever talked low of the Omnia... only the unlock phone got a bad rating.. The Locked GSM variant got high reviews retard..

i'm with alltel, and i could care less about this phone. I've got a glimmer, and more than likely, this phone will have the same poor response touch screen as the Glimmer. So until we get a real touchscreen phone like the TouchHD, which looks even less likely to happen on CDMA, i simply don't care for them. And a AT&T tower just got put up in my backyard so the hole in my part of the state is filled. So I'm looking pretty foward to the end of my contract. This is just a honest question, how many of you send picture messages on a pretty regular basis? I don't, so the iPhone no multimedia message thing doesn't really bother me. I was just wondering if anyone really sends multimedia messages enough to get upset about it. I got the whole messaging package with alltel but hardly use the multimedia part of it. Just curious.
