Alltel gets the super-thin Samsung Wafer

Alltel Wireless scored a win today, being the first carrier in the US to offer Samsung's "Wafer," the 8.4-mm thick SCH-r510. The super-thin phone features XM radio, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and music playing capabilities. Pretty slick, if you ask me.

The wafer is available now for a downright-reasonable price of $50 with contract (albeit after a $50 mail-in rebate, which sucks), which is a pretty cheap price for such a slick phone. If you're a happy Alltel customer looking to get a new contract, now seems like the time to do it. Go forth and upgrade, my friends.
