Splash-resistant 8-inch Pantech Element tablet arriving on AT&T next week
Waterproof gadgets are all the rage over in Japan, but in the States its rare to even see one, let alone purchase it. The Pantech Element is an exception - this 8-inch tablet comes with a waterproof display, making it the perfect match for your bath downtime. Well, at least we hope that’s what “waterproof for real life” means really. Digging further in the specs, you’d find an IP57 waterproof rating, which means that the device is splash resistant, but it’d be a bad idea to submerge it in water.
Under the hood, the Element features a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, which is plenty of processing power for Android 3.2 Honeycomb. You also get 16 gigs of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera capable of recording 1080p video and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera allowing 720p video conferencing. Additionally, you also get “Piezo Motor” haptic feedback.
The Pantech Element expected to land on AT&T on January 8th for $299.99 with a two-year contract, or retailing for $449.99 off contract. How do you like it?
