Alltel to get Samsung R200 and R500

Brian White

A batch of new Samsung handsets is apparently headed to Alltel soon. Specifically, the Sammy SCH-R500 and the SCH-R200 should be on their way to Alltel shelves (and on Alltel's site) for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. While the R200 is a relatively plain (but slim) candybar, you'll be hooked on it if you liked the Samsung Wafer (the R200 is very similar in size). Size aside, the R200 drops several features from the Wafer to make the cut to its entry-level status. Meanwhile, the 1.3 megapixel, EV-DO R500 clamshell reminds us of the Samsung SPH-M500 from Sprint (at least in features), but does have stereo speakers inside that fold. No word just yet on release dates.
