Alltel today announced its own version of the Samsung Intensity. Called the Double Take, it offers the same slider design with a full QWERTY keyboard and 2.1-inch display. It's also available in either red or gray.

Alltel's version's features are identical as well. On it, you'll find a music player; a 1.3-megapixel camera; voice commands and dialing; Bluetooth; a speakerphone; a personal organizer; a memory card slot; a standard Web browser; messaging; and POP3 e-mail support. The Double Take is $39 with a $50 mail-in rebate and a one-year service contract.

Keep in mind that the Double Take is available only to customers in the markets that Verizon Wireless divested as part of the merger. Those areas will continue to operate as Alltel markets until the Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission approve sale agreements with AT&T and Atlantic Tele-Network.
