AT&T's $50 Android Smartphone Has a 12.6-megapixel Camera, Doesn't Seem…

When I think of Pantech, I don't have too many fond memories. But the Android 4.0-based Discover might change that. Available starting January 11 from AT&T for $50, the Discover is an 4G LTE smartphone with a 4.8-inch HD display (1280x720) and a crazy 12.6-megapixel camera that shoots full HD video at 30fps. » 1/07/13 3:27pm 1/07/13 3:27pm

The Pantech Element Android Tablet Only Matters Because It's Waterproof

The Pantech Element is a sorta nice, cheapo 4G LTE Android tablet for AT&T that has a 1.5GHz dual core processor and blazing fast download speeds (100Mbps! Yah! Sure! Only if you're inside a tower). It only costs $250 but requires a scar inducing 2-year contract (why!) but that's not the reason I care for it. The only… » 1/09/12 2:03pm 1/09/12 2:03pm

Pantech Slate World's Thinnest QWERTY Phone, Slim Everywhere Else Too

Pantech's Slate is billing itself as the world's thinnest QWERTY phone, which is true in more ways than one. The feature set is pretty anorexic—a 1.3-megapixel camera should not be a bullet point—but it's really cheap too, only $50 with a two-year contract, so it's perfect if you want the absolute cheapest, most… » 10/29/08 5:29pm 10/29/08 5:29pm

Pantech Matrix Dual Sliding Phone Has More Buttons Than Sense

Formed from the same genetic ooze as Pantech's Slide Duo smartphone and rebranded Helio Ocean handset, the Matrix is a mildly frustrating device: spec'd with the best, but dressed in the worst. An HSDPA-enabled handset with GPS, a full QWERTY keyboard in addition to a dialpad, and two cameras should have the software… » 10/14/08 5:30am 10/14/08 5:30am

Pantech Duo 2 Dual-Sliding Windows Mobile Phone Leaked on FCC

Seeing as the original AT&T Pantech Duo 1 is the C810, this C820 has a really high possibility of being the Pantech Duo 2. There aren't many details, but it's got WCDMA 850/1900, which is AT&T's 3G, and probably will run Windows Mobile like the previous ones. It's interesting to check out the differences between this… » 5/31/08 12:00pm 5/31/08 12:00pm

AT&T's Pantech Breeze, A Hip Phone for Geezers on the Go

AT&T's geezerphone, the Pantech Breeze, is designed with the elderly in mind. The Breeze has three big speed-dial buttons, simple menus, a loud speakerphone and large font. Now you can hear Gladys's mahjong story and read Morty's steamy text messages from anywhere in Del Boca Vista. A step up from the Jitterbug and… » 5/27/08 9:30am 5/27/08 9:30am

Will You Be Using One of These Phones in 2010?

What phone will you be using in the far off age of 2010? Along with our flying cars and robot slaves, you could be sporting one of these concept phone designs born out of a partnership between phone company Pantech (Sky Premium) and Korean university students. Pantech has a reputation for wacky concepts that were… » 3/26/08 5:30pm 3/26/08 5:30pm

Pantech Duo C810 Dual Slider Now Rocks the AT&T Casbah


Check out this hands-on video of the Pantech Duo C810, now available via AT&T just as we told you it would be. The dual-slidin' WinMo 6 phone looks a bit smaller than we thought it was (and smaller than the similar Helio Ocean), but still seems clunky and a bit thick for our tastes. But hey, what do you want for $250… » 10/29/07 7:50am 10/29/07 7:50am

Pantech's Bone Conduction Phone Makes Us Say Duh

Although bone conduction is nothing new in headphones and Bluetooth headsets, not very many cellphones incorporate it into their feature sets. Pantech's KDDI A1407PT in Japan does have this bone conduction loudspeaker, and channels sound through your bones from your ear (or just behind your ear), which helps you hear… » 10/16/07 2:40pm 10/16/07 2:40pm

AT&T's Dual-Sliding Pantech Duo In the Wild

The Pantech Duo, seen previously as the Helio Ocean, has just been spotted in the wild by a tipster. He takes some sample shots next to his V3xx RAZR, which should give you a good idea of how large it is in comparison. If it's as thick as the Ocean, prepare to be either appalled or flattered when your friends comment… » 9/19/07 4:20pm 9/19/07 4:20pm

Pantech 180, Thinner and Smaller than Helio Ocean, Coming Up on AT&T

Look at this Pantech C180 that Boy Genius Report just uncovered, branded AT&T and looking a whole lot like a smaller and thinner Helio Ocean. Unlike the Ocean, this Pantech slider runs Windows Mobile 6 Standard, but just like the Ocean, it has that appealing dual-sliding arrangement, where a horizontal slide reveals a… » 8/28/07 4:09pm 8/28/07 4:09pm
