Alltel gets Moto Evoke

Motorola's newest touch-screen phone, the Evoke QA4, lands at Alltel.

It's been only two weeks since CTIA, but many of the new phones introduced at the show are already going on sale. AT&T picked up the Samsung Impression, Samsung Propel Pro, and LG Xenon, and Thursday Alltel announced it would have the Motorola Evoke QA4.

The Evoke was Moto's sole new phone at CTIA . The touch-screen handset doesn't offer a whole lot new, but it has its attractions just the same. The handset is a reasonable $79 with service.

In case you didn't catch our coverage from CTIA, the Moto has a slider design with a 2.8-inch touch screen and a standard numeric keypad. Texting is done through the virtual QWERTY keyboard. Features include EV-DO Rev. A support, stereo Bluetooth, a music player, a full HTML browser, a 2-megapixel camera, organizer features, a memory card slot, USB mass storage, and a speakerphone.

We'll have a review unit in the next few days and will give you a full report.
