Jul 31, 2006, 9:31 AM by (staff)
Alltel and Digit Wireless today announced the LG AX-490, the country's first phone with a FasTap text keypad. FasTap speeds messaging and other text entry by adding individual letter keys in-between the number keys of a standard phone keypad. The FasTap keypad also enables one-touch shortcuts to nearly any function of the phone. The clamshell CDMA phone also features Bluetooth, a VGA camera, BREW, a full-color OLED outer display, and speaker-independent voice control. The AX-490 will be available Thursday, August 3rd.
What took so long?

Groovy looking handset...
I due hope that Verizon Wireless does get this phone and/or technology...it is AWESOME!!!
Actually, I can't believe that it took this long for some manufacturer to think of this...I would get this phone if it was offered from Verizon Wireless.
Cool phone...cool idea!
Also, I like LG, I think they are a very good brand...they always got high ratings in JD Powers studies and other electronics sites [CNET]. Plus, I like their build quality and heft that distinquishes them as a solid contender.
today when I saw this phone i was like sh** why didn't cingular release this one I have never heard of this Fas Tap technology but i like it and hope its not left to LG and that smartphone flips like the star trek can implement this technology.
How Long Before Verizon Gets It?
