Celltop: iPhoney widgets from Alltel

Alltel_celltop OK, how long before Alltel gets a ‘cease & desist’ for the Apple-like widgets in their Celltop phone interface? We got a press release (PDF) yesterday on this one and clearly, they’re NOT widgets, they’re cells, ‘k? Actually, these individual cells look like a nice UI addition to a standard cell phone. You can add any number of custom cells such as a call log, weather, news, baseball, basketball, football, rodeo, stocks, text messaging inbox and ringtones. Actually, the "rodeo" cell alone may prove that there’s a difference between these cells and Apple’s widgets. Kinda funny that they have Apple as the top stock in the Stock Cell show below though…

Alltel partnered up with Motricity on this one; you’ll see the new functionality on certain Alltel phones now, but the carrier expects to place this on all of their new phones by year end.
