A poster over at Howard Forums seems to have the scoop on a very hot looking new LG handset that may be an Alltel exclusive set to launch in mid-March. The Glimmer looks like a Shine with a touchscreen - it's a slider phone that goes one better than the LG Venus for VZW by adding a full touchscreen instead of Venus' menus-only touch sensitive area on the lower portion of the display.
The images of Glimmer's press release look pretty legit (links below), and the phone itself looks pretty sweet. A 2.8" touch screen with haptic feedback, music player with stereo Bluetooth support and microSD memory card slot, two megapixel shooter with flash, and EVDO data access with Web and YouTube browsers all add up to a pretty nice looking piece of kit.
And several references to Alltel service scattered about the spec sheet mean this could be a rare coup for the carrier ... and a pretty sexy one at that.
