HTC Aria & Pantech Ease for AT&T are now up for grabs

HTC Aria & Pantech Ease for AT&T are now up for grabs
Not only did AT&T start selling the LG Vu Plus online today, two additional handsets have made it onto the scene that further branches out AT&T's depth of handsets that span a broad spectrum of individuals. First and foremost, the Pantech Ease is now available online for the price of $69.99 on-contract and after a mail-in-rebate. Geared towards the older population, this touchscreen enabled quick messaging device can literally switch in a heart beat to accommodate both veteran users and those who aren't attuned to some of the modern conveniences most phones offer. It features a WQVGA touchscreen, landscape style QWERTY, and a 2-megapixel camera while extra rarely seen features like a built-in pedometer and pill reminder can definitely come in hand for older adults. On the other hand, you have the HTC Aria which supplements AT&T's Android lineup with features like a 3.2” HVGA touchscreen, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, Bluetooth, 3G, and Wi-Fi. Not the high-end specs that AT&T customers are looking for, it should prove to be a decent solution for your Android fix even though it's priced at $129.99 on-contract. However, you'll have to traverse to a store in order to get your hands on this puppy seeing it has yet to become available online.

I got to say att actually has an android phone and this is my opinion it just sucks, they could have released the samsung captivate or made this better specs, not saying it needs to be bigger but.... I dono att to me is about bad service, quality, service issues like we've recently seen a spike in, and all about the iphone, WHEN THE IPHONE GOES TO OTHER CARRIERS ATT=POINTLESS +FAIL I KNOW IM GETTING MINUS 20 FOR THIS BUT THIS IS MY OPINION

Understand that not everybody is like you. To a lot of AT&T customers (especially average consumers), the HTC Aria is a great addition to AT&T's growing Android line up, especially after the failure of the Backflip. Lke mdw92581 said, the Samsung Captive is coming, so stop complaining and just wait.

Jyakotu, I agree with you. The Aria is a slick little android phone that will more than meet most of its user's needs. There is always a place for top end phones as well as mid and entry level. Clearly AT&T and HTC were not trying to blow away the competition with the Aria.
