â€œThe HTC Snap brings together a perfect combination of fun and entertainment with the technical capabilities of a device made for business,â€ said Wendy Michell, Director of Device Strategies for the Alltel Divesture Trust. â€œAlltel customers throughout our territory will enjoy the handsetâ€™s look and feel along with its broad range of features.â€
The HTC Snap includes international roaming and Wi-Fi capabilities. The handset is Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A capable, which makes it a perfect phone for Alltelâ€™s advanced 3G network, providing faster uploads and downloads, streaming audio and video, and speedier browsing. Users will enjoy a familiar operating system â€“ Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard â€“ with the HTC Snap and a four-row QWERTY keyboard, perfect for typing e-mails to business colleagues and sending text messages to friends. The handset comes preloaded with MicrosoftÂ® Outlook Mobile and a new feature called â€˜Inner Circleâ€™ that allows customers to prioritize messages from a select number of contacts across multiple e-mail accounts.
Included in the HTC Snap package is a multivoltage AC Adapter, USB cable, headset, a 3-in-1 audio adapter and four international AC plugs for those traveling outside of the United States.
Alltel continues to be the only major wireless carrier to offer 2-year postpaid handset pricing to those signing 1-year contracts. Customers must however select one of the Alltel Wireless Smart Choice packs that include national voice minutes, unlimited Internet browsing and e-mail, and â€œMy Circle.â€ Smart Choice packs begin at $69.99. The HTC Snap smartphone and 1-year contract option is available only to customers in the 91 cellular market areas (CMAs) that Verizon Wireless is required to divest, which will continue to operate as Alltel Wireless until the sale agreements with AT&T and Atlantic Tele-Network are approved by the Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission.
