Pantech Swift for AT&T is a teen-friendly QWERTY feature phone
Cheap dumb phones – we see them less and less nowadays, yet a new model gets announced every now and then; a new model like the Pantech Swift, which is now available on AT&T. What we have on our hands is a device for the younger crowd, judging by the presence of a hardware QWERTY keyboard. Teens love to text, you know. 

Other than that, the Pantech Swift does not offer much to write home about. The display is a 2.8-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 240 by 320 pixels, and a 2-megapixel camera resides on the phone's back. Social networking clients come pre-loaded, and a 3G radio is on board to ensure that those Facebook photos load quickly. 

There are 180MB of on-board storage, which can be expanded via microSD card of up to 32GB, and the 1000mAh battery is rated for 3 hours of talk time.

As long as you don't mind signing a 2-year contract, the Pantech Swift can be purchased for $70 after rebate. It is definitely not something that a tech-savvy individual would get, but a teenage kid would probably not mind owning one.

Before anyone gets the idea that Pantech is some budget handset maker, keep in mind they do make beasts, they just don't release them in the states. Hmmm shame this phone is stuck on at&t, our secretary's son needs a new feature phone....

Quite true. The Burst, even being a budget smartphone, is still very competitive, even with pricier models. Pantech has some very good phones in their home Asian markets

I hope this means they're finally putting the Ease out to pasture... They've had that stuck in their lineup for a few years now.

Why can't anyone make any new keyboard slider phone that isn't a piece of crap? Mine is 18 months old and it's way better than this or anything I've seen come out in the past 6 months.
