Posted by at 10:58 am on November 6, 2009

Now, music fans can take a different kind of musical journey with the LG 8575 Touch, the newest multimedia handset from Alltel Wireless and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones). The handset was available beginning Nov. 5, at Alltel retail stores and online at alltel.com.

The LG 8575 Touch features Dolby Mobile, a sound system equipped with customizable EQ settings for rich sound quality and exceptional user experience. Sound transfers through external speakers and 3.5 MM stereo headphones, allowing customers to enjoy personalized playlists wherever their journeys might take them. The music player also features applications that invite users to “join the band” by turning the handset into a virtual keyboard and thumping drum kit. A unique rhythmic beat function instantly transforms the phone into a portable boom box that vibrates and grooves to the beat of the music.

With 1GB of internal memory dedicated to music, up to 250 songs can be stored on the phone, and listeners can enhance their storage options with an external microSD card of up to 16 GB. In addition, the LG 8575 Touch also includes an FM tuner so users can catch their favorite radio shows or hear the newest tunes from their local radio stations.

“As technology advances, more of our customers are asking for one device that fits all of their communication needs,” said Paul Bowersock, Senior Sales & Operations Leader for the Alltel Divesture Trust. “Now there’s no reason to have a separate MP3 player, camera and wireless phone -“ with the LG 8575 Touch, customers can have it all in one sleek package.”

Knowing that music fans are also in tune with the latest in multimedia handset functions, the LG 8575 Touch is equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera and camcorder that can zoom up to 1.6 times. The camera includes “Intelligent Shot” for improved image quality and an image editor that will let users manipulate their photos right from the handset’s high-resolution 3-inch touch screen. Users can also shoot panoramic photos and enhance facial features with the Facial Makeover function.

In addition, the handset features text, picture and video messaging along with a one-touch speakerphone, text to speech functionality, GPS, web browsing, Bluetooth capabilities and a battery that will stand up to all the demands of a multimedia user. The LG 8575 Touch’s rechargeable battery allows more than five hours of talk time.

The LG 8575 Touch is available for $19.99 to customers after a $50 mail-in and with the activation of a 1-year service contract on qualifying rate plan. Customers must select one of the Alltel Wireless Smart Choice packs that include national voice minutes, unlimited Internet browsing and e-mail, and “My Circle.” Smart Choice packs begin at $69.99.
