Samsung Delve intros US market to TouchWiz by way of Alltel


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.
