As we'd previously heard, the Delve
will be the first handset officially released in the US to feature Samsung's widget-based TouchWiz
technology, courtesy of Alltel -- and while we sorta wish it was the Windows Mobile version
, this is about as deluxe as a dumbphone UI gets. The glossy bar of pure, keyboardless touchscreen action will go for $199.99 on contract after a $100 rebate when it's available on November 6 and features a 3.5mm headphone jack, support for Alltel Navigation, microSD expansion, and a 2-megapixel cam with video capture. It also bundles nuTsie
at no charge, giving buyers access to their iTunes playlists -- a direct shot at the iPhone from a handset clearly in the same vein. You might even say the Delve "delves" into iTunes. Sorry.
