US Cellular has announced the immediate availability of their latest handset, the Alcatel One Touch Premiere. The One Touch is a quick messaging style device with full hardware QWERTY keyboard. The handset is being touted as the “first premium messaging phone” to be offered by the carrier. And for those curious, the One Touch Premiere will be available with the Messaging Plus plan from US Cellular.
“Complementing the service offering, the affordably-priced ONE TOUCH Premiere™ offers an enhanced messaging and mobile web experience that includes pre-loaded applications and quick access to weather, maps, navigation, email, web browsing and social media.”
As for that price, those interested in making a purchase can expect to pay $29.99. But just to make things clear, that price comes on a two-year agreement and after a $50 mail-in rebate. Otherwise, aside from those few perks mentioned above, the One Touch Premiere has features to include a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 3G connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi and is running an unspecified version of Android.
