We learned back in October that the Pantech Impact was coming to the AT&T network in time for the holiday season. What we didn’t hear back in October was exactly when the device would be offered. The Impact handset is now available on the AT&T Wireless network for $99.99 after a mail-in rebate.
If you fancy a new phone from AT&T, but aren't too fussed about Windows Mobile 6.5, then the carrier has four more options for you to choose from. Left to right you're looking at the Samsung Mythic, the Samsung Flight and the Pantech Reveal, which offer differing combinations of full touchscreen and hardware keyboard. Meanwhile there's also the Pantech Impact, not pictured, with an OLED touchscreen and full QWERTY.
It's Sunday again. Another week is about to start, but before we get to look forward to all the news coming out of the industry next week, we reflect on what we learned last week. Ok, I'm done reflecting, how about you? No? Can't remember all the news from last week? Well here's the rundown.
The day has arrived; SlashGear in partnership with AT&T is giving you a chance to win Pantech Matrix Pro Smartphone with a $100 credit for any services or products sold on AT&T store. Feeling lucky? Here is how you can win it all.
SlashGear is joining 25 other websites to give away total of 26 unit of Pantech Matrix Pro for AT&T. The giveaway starts today and will end on the 14th of May. Each site will have its own terms and conditions for the giveaway. We will announce our own giveaway on the 18th of April and unveil the winner on the 22nd of April.
The new Pantech Matrix Pro, previously reported as Pantech Duo 2, is now official with AT&T. The company has today announced the successor to Pantech Duo, adding a smaller but more feature-rich and upscale smartphone with a 2.4-inch display. As expected, the Matrix Pro now features a full-fledged Windows Mobile 6.1 and also incorporates the signature dual sliding keyboards – both numeric and QWERTY - from the previous model.
The Pantech Duo 2 has cleared the FCC, with the same dual-sliding design - incorporating both numeric and QWERTY keyboards - but now running Windows Mobile 6.1. The original Duo was better known as the Helio Ocean, but there was also a GSM version on AT&T. The Duo 2 (aka the C820) has a 2-megapixel camera and dual-band 850/1900 GSM/EDGE/WCDMA.
The Drop Phone (AKA Shooting Star), which was designed by fuseproject is said to “resemble a drop of water with a refined taste and sophistication”. It’s a fully functioning intuitive phone and it looks beautiful.
It is, as the title said a Best of Innovations 2008 Honoree, even though Pantech said they wouldn’t be exhibiting this year. I think it’s sort of gutsy to put the word “Drop” in the name of your phone but it takes guts to make it.
That’s right, even ATT wants their piece of the pie come this Friday. What are they doing to garner your attention? Try a 50% off sale on certain handsets.
Interested in the Samsung a737? Sony Ericsson w580i? BlackBerry Curve 8310? Pantech Duo? What about the Moto RAZR2? Well they are all half off, priced at $24.99, $24.99, $99.99, $99.99, and $149.99 respectively.
