HTC Bee and Desire Dummy Phones Arrive in Alltel Stores

It looks like that HTC Bee ROM that was floating around with Alltel branding on it wasn’t lying.  The shot above is of HTC Desire and Bee dummy phones that are beginning to arrive at Alltel Wireless stores meaning the devices will be available in the coming weeks.  The HTC Desire is sort of a surprise and our sources have it actually launching as the “Spitfire” or at least something along those lines.

A lot of us thought Alltel was dead, but they are starting to put together quite a nice Android lineup which already includes the Motorola Milestone.

Cheers Alltel!

  • ALLTEL is back and not a Verizon company….mostly known as Allied Phone Company, as it used to be in the early 20th century.

  • Patwww

    The BEE is sooooo cute 😎

  • also what does this have to with droid?

    • kellex

      It's Android and we have some Alltel readers. 🙂

      Plus there is a Milestone reference in there…which is sort of Droid.


      Also VZW owns Alltel.

        Not the part that's getting these phones though. The Alltel brand is part of AT&T now.

        • FUSIBLE

          I spoke partially without gathering more facts. ATT acquired part the Alltel markets not the name. ATN actually bought the remaining Alltel assets as required from the approved acquisition by the FCC. Along with it came the Alltel as part of VZW and ATN deal.

        Allte is now owned by Allied…..Just wait and see what happens next…..

  • why is the optical track ball on the desire slightly to the right instead of the middle

    • Michael_NM

      Isn't that an optical illusion caused by the buttons on either side?

  • FIRST! (who cares by the way!)
