Just in time for the holidays, AT&T Inc. today announced the availability of the AT&T Quickfire(TM), the final of four new quick messaging mobile phones designed to make messaging faster and easier than ever before. The Quickfire was developed for AT&T by Personal Communications Devices LLC (PCD).
A slider boasting an interactive touch screen, 1.3 megapixel camera and full QWERTY keypad, the AT&T Quickfire is a 3G world phone that can read messages in portrait or landscape mode and also download music over the nation's fastest 3G network with Napster Mobile and eMusic Mobile. Quickfire also features AT&T Navigator, which provides turn-by-turn directions and is available with a 30-day free trial(1).
AT&T's new quick messaging devices are already popular with customers, allowing everyone from newbie messengers to textaholics to send text, picture, video and instant messages with ease.
"The AT&T Quickfire is perfect for texting fans who let their thumbs do the talking and want the benefit of a full keypad but don't need corporate e-mail access or other business features," said Mark Collins, vice president of Voice and Data Services for AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
All quick messaging phones are compatible with AT&T's messaging plans that offer 200, 1,500 and unlimited messaging for $5, $15 and $20, respectively. AT&T FamilyTalk® plan customers can get unlimited messaging for all lines for $30.
Users can also browse and purchase thousands of apps, games, ringtones, graphics and other mobile content in the AT&T MEdia Mall, available from their handsets and also online at http://www.att.com/mediamall.
