AT&T and Pantech offer touchscreen Pursuit mobile

If you are an AT&T customer who just doesn't need all that a high-end smartphone like the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 offer you might be interested in the new Pantech Pursuit mobile. The new handset is a messaging phone that is designed for easy use and low price.

The Pursuit has a touchscreen with a 2.8-inch display and it features a digital camera, access to social networking, music player, and video playback. A slide-out QWERTY keyboard is also featured and the handset comes in blue or green colors.

Pantech adds in some different features for the phone like Drawing Commander that dials contacts and activates apps on the handset by tracing a finger on the touchscreen. The device also has a graffiti mode that lets you draw on images using a finger right on the screen. The handset is also designed for multitasking and connects to the AT&T 3G network. The device is available now and is $49.99 after a new contract and a mail-in $50 rebate.
