The 3G, candy bar Android smartphone sports a 3.2-inch touch screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, an 800Mhz processor, and Swype on the virtual keyboard. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a load of Google services are also present, as is a microSD card slot.
We're not too impressed that the Gem packs Android 2.1 Eclair, considering that the more advancedhas been available for over six months.
Still, the rock-bottom price will make up for an earlier OS for some. Alltel's Gem will be free after a $50 mail-in rebate for all new two-year service agreements.
