Pantech C810/Duo review: Can’t put it down

It’s been a while since Pantech has released a smart phone. I was skeptical when I first laid eyes on the Pantech C810, also known as the Pantech Duo. But all of my doubts were soon washed away. I don’t know if this dual sliding, smart phone could have been executed any better.

The Pantech Duo is available through AT&T meaning it’s GSM. It operates on the 850, 900, 1800, 1900 frequencies, meaning the phone will suit all of your international traveling needs.


Pantech add bone conduction to silent cellphone

Bone conduction.  No, not some heinous experiment involving a hot-plate and the contents of your Dad’s underpants, it’s a way of squirrelling sound into your ears by directly vibrating your skull.  The key benefits are that you can still hear despite ambient noise – that means you don’t have to turn the volume up – and it’s far more private as eavesdroppers would have to press their faces against yours to hear it.  And you’d probably notice them doing that.  We’ve seen it before on Bluetooth headsets and mp3 players, but Pantech are perhaps the first to put it directly into a cellphone with their A1407PT.



SlashGear Review – Pantech C150

The C150 is one of the latest low-end phones to come from Pantech. Low-end doesn’t mean it’s not a good phone, it just means that it doesn’t have all of the fancy features that you’d find in your smartphones and such.


Pantech c810, Makers of Helio Ocean Release 2nd Dual Slider

Pantech, the maker of the Helio Ocean, is set to release the c810. AT&T will be getting this dual slider, instead of Helio. Sadly though, AT&T’s version might have Windows Mobile 6, but Helio has the power of Sprint’s EV-DO network, instead of mere EDGE speeds.

So, if you are a big fan of Windows Mobile 6, but also liked the dual slider action of the Ocean, feel free to go ahead and buy the Ocean and tell all the c810 users how much faster it is. No really though, the c810 is a pretty decent option for all the business users who need a phone based on the Windows Mobile platform.


Pantech chooses to release C150 in white only

It looks like Pantech has decided to stray away from the black C150, instead opting only for a white color. We’ve got some updated pics of the new color.

The C150 is a great candy-bar camera phone that’s got plenty of features to keep most people happy. Instant messaging support is always great, along with email access for Yahoo!, AOL and Windows Live make sure that you’re always accessible.

Hands On -The Pantech C3b is definitely a chick phone

I have been carrying around the Pantech C3b for about a month now. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when it arrived, because from the photographs of the phone I actually didn’t care much for it. Once it did come in the overall look was definitely cute.


Pantech updates their “World’s Smallest Camera Flip-phone” line with the C3b

Today Pantech released their “World’s Smallest Camera Flip-phone” the C3b on the AT&T network. It has some new features to add to their existing line of phones that share the same title.


New dual-screen slider from Pantech

Pantech Group has just announced that they will be launching their new IM-R200 handset which is a slider phone sporting dual LCD screens.


Pictures of Pantech’s new international phones

Pantech really went all-out at this year’s CTIA show. They brought a ton of phones with them, and finally, I bring you the last of them. These are phones that are due to be released in territories outside of the US.


Pictures of Pantech’s new US phones

We announced earlier this week that Pantech has several new phones for the US market. While Vincent was hanging out with the folks over at Pantech, he managed to get his hands on some, and snap a few shots.
