[Alaska Communications Systems Group announces the launch of the HTC Touch/PPC 6900 Smartphone Windows Mobile 6.0 device operating on ACS' 3G EVDO Rev A CDMA network.]

Anchorage, Alaska -- Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc. ("ACS") today announced the launch of the HTC Touch/PPC 6900 Smartphone. This unique Windows Mobile 6.0 device features an easy-to-use touch screen platform that allows users to navigate the world with the swipe of a finger. Its robust 3-D interface provides one-touch access to messages, the Internet, voice dialing, multimedia content and much more.

ACS customers can customize their HTC Touch to access contacts, listen to music, view photos, play games, stream video, stay on top of news, sports and weather, or do office work anywhere. The phone is sporty and compact with a stylish design and soft-touch finish. Other cool features include:

-- CDMA, EVDO voice and data

-- 2 megapixel camera

-- Bluetooth or stereo headset

-- Windows Live instant messaging

-- Micro SD memory card slot

-- Ability to use as a modem to connect a laptop computer to the Internet

"The HTC Touch's intuitive software makes it much more than a phone. It opens up a world of media, communication and social interaction. It's really a multimedia experience at the tip of one's fingers," said Connie Dorman, Director of Marketing.

The HTC Touch operates on ACS' 3G CDMA network which the Company recently optimized with EVDO Rev A, the latest evolution in Mobile Internet. Rev A provides the fastest mobile speeds available in the United States, and HTC Touch users will be able to upgrade their phones to become Rev A-compatible through a free software download later this year.

Rev A is currently available on the CDU-680 Mobile Internet Key, and ACS has a number of other Rev A devices planned for the near future. ACS roams on Rev A in much of Canada. In the Lower 49, ACS expects to initiate Rev A roaming later this year. The HTC Touch is available for $249.99 with a two-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate.
