Pantech Flex announced by AT&T with Easy Experience mode for simplicity seekers

Pantech Flex
AT&T just made the Pantech Flex official – an Android handset tailored for first-time smartphone users and people that like things simple. The device is the first among the carrier's lineup to include the so-called Easy Experience mode. When enabled, it arranges apps on the home screen in a neatly-organized, easy-to-read fashion, thus providing quick access to frequently used features – social networking, web browsing, email, and more. At the same time, all of the device's advanced functions are accessible, and should the user need to, they are free to switch back to the traditional Android interface.

Specs-wise, the Pantech Flex offers a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with qHD resolution (540 by 960 pixels). Inside it runs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, and an 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash is positioned on its back. If available, the smartphone can connect to AT&T's 4G LTE network for speedy access to the internet. The unit tips the scales at 4.6 ounces. On the software side of things, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes out of the box.

AT&T will start offering the Pantech Flex on Sunday, September 16, both online and in its retail stores, as well as in partners' outlets. Pricing is set at the quite reasonable $49.99 with a 2-year contract. Any takers?
