Alltel Finds its Muse

New and existing Alltel customers in the market for a simple music phone with some nice added functionality will be interested to learn that Alltel has officially launched the Samsung Muse. The Muse is billed as an ultra-slim music phone and it definitely fits the bill. Dedicated touch-sensitive music keys beneath the outer screen provide playback control while a dedicated music key on the keypad provides immediate player access from any screen within the UI. Beyond the MP3 player capabilities, the Muse also comes with a free trial of 20 satellite radio stations via Alltel’s XM Radio Mobile service. Some spec highlights:

  • 2 megapixel camera with video capture
  • A2DP stereo bluetooth
  • 64MB of internal memory, microSD slot
  • GPS-capable with Axcess Mobile Guide preloaded
  • Celltop-ready
  • 1XRTT / EVDO
  • 230 min talk time, 215 hour standby

The two-year contract price is definitely a selling point; just $90 after a $50 mail-in-rebate. The Muse is also compatible with all of the goodies you can enjoy with Alltel such as My Circle and Axcess Voice2TXT. Heavy mobile users need not apply of course, but light users and younger music fans should definitely enjoy the functionality, sleek form factor and low price point.
