AT&T launched Pantech Slate

AT&T launched Pantech Slate
With the holiday season closing in fast, AT&T has added another QWERTY keypad phone to its line up. Pantech's Slate is the second device with a QWERTY keypad out of four that were scheduled to be launched by AT&T; the first being the Propel.

The Slate is said to be the world's thinnest messaging device. It features a 1.3-megapixel camera with the support to record video. Having to come without any 3G radio, the phone is quad-band for world wide adaptability on GSM/GPRS and runs on speeds of AT&T's EDGE network when it comes to web browsing. With no external memory card slot and the bare bone features mentioned, Pantech still managed to 'squeeze' in Bluetooth.

The Slate is available in black with a royal blue coming soon. It can be yours for $49.99 after a 2-year contract.

Personally, I enjoy this phone. I think it has a good camera, decent battery and if works great. I love the key board and its features rock. There's not much personalization to be done. Nice and big screen and great protective grip on the backkk.

Design is very bland. Looks like a cheap smartphone (but if that's what they're going for, then good for Pantech). However, AT&T needs to hurry up and release the Quickfire. I'm holding out for that phone.

It would seem that we can all agree, despite our carrier preferences, pantech sucks....

isn't this the 3rd release for the 4 qwerty phones? and the Matrix was the 1st? this does look like it sucks, and i thought Pantech was getting better when they released the Matrix but i guess not. I am so holding out for the Quickfire. i hope it doeskin disappoint.
