Alltel Launches HTC Touch in New Burgundy Color

Alltel has launched another color option for the HTC Touch for those that wish to have a brighter color than the usual staid gray/black/silver of conventional smart devices.

The device is otherwise identical to the original version previously launched with a 2.8 inch QVGA display, TouchFLO user interface, Windows Mobile 6 Professional, Bluetooth with stereo audio support, speakerphone, 2.0 megapixel camera with video recorder, and microSDHC expansion slot.

The device is now available from the regional carrier for $229.99 before an additional $100 mail-in rebate bringing the total to $129.99.
