Pantech Burst and Element go on sale today for $50 and $300 - bundled together for $250
After seeing both devices at CES 2012, both the Pantech Burst and Element are officially on sale starting today, but more importantly, a special surprise awaits those who intend on buying the two devices at the same time.

Let’s start off with the Pantech Burst, which provides customers with an inexpensive 4G LTE solution that won’t break the bank. Not only does it come packing support for AT&T’s 4G LTE network, but its specs sheet is admirable enough to entice those who want a reasonable device. In fact, it features such alluring things such as a 4” WVGA Super AMOLED display and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, which are enough to impress some of us. Meanwhile, the other niceties include a 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, 720p video recording, and 16GB of internal storage. For all the cool things it’s offering out of the box, its $49.99 on-contract price is easily deemed as a steal.

On the other hand, there’s the Pantech Element – which appropriately showed off its ruggedness during AT&T’s Developers Summit a couple weeks ago. For $299.99 and some change, with your signature on a 2-year agreement, you get a generous 8” Honeycomb tablet that’ll even work while it’s submerged under water – well, it’s actually waterproof! In addition, it features an 8” WXGA display, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 4G LTE connectivity, 5-megapixel camera, 1080p video recording, and 16GB of internal storage.  Not only can you surf the web while on the beach, but there are no worries about taking it down to the water as well.

Lastly, if you’re absolutely ecstatic about this two new additions on AT&T’s lineup, then you’ll probably be interested in the sweet bundle deal that’s available with the two. Rather than shelling out $50 for the Burst and another $300 for the Element, if you purchase them simultaneously, you can nab the two on a bundled deal for a mere $249.99 on-contract – a savings of $100!

Make it a 10.1 tablet, waterproof the phone, and put it on a shared data plan so i can pay for it

Typo alert- the Element by itself is $299, not $249
