    AT&T’s Pantech Element LTE Tablet Leaked, Arriving January 8

    AT&T is slowly and steadily building up their portfolio of LTE-capable devices, and it looks like yet another has just broken cover. Due to be officially unveiled on January 8, the Pantech Element is AT&T’s newest LTE tablet, and is the first in AT&T’s lineup not to cost an absurd amount of money with a contract. Read More

    AT&T Adds Five New Android Phones To Their Lineup

    If you thought that AT&T’s Android lineup was a bit lacking, then today’s announcement just may change your mind. AT&T has pulled back the curtains on a fleet of five new Android-powered smartphones that should hit wireless retailers just in time for all that holiday commotion. Read More

  • AT&T and Pantech officially launch the ultra-slim Pantech Slate

    AT&T and Pantech officially launch the ultra-slim Pantech Slate

    We knew the thinnest QWERTY keyboard phone was coming, but AT&T and Pantech have officially launched the Slate. The phone measures less than one centimeter deep and is equipped with standard 2006-circa specs: 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth, and multimedia functions. To be honest though, the phone is only going to be $50 after a two-year agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate so what more can you want? Read More

  • Pantech Duo gets the Windows Mobile 6.1 treatment

    Pantech Duo gets the Windows Mobile 6.1 treatment

    Right after Helio worked with Pantech on the Ocean, Pantech cranked out the strikingly similar (albeit with less spring-loaded-slider goodness) Duo. This morning, Pantech announced that not only had all the Duos currently sitting on AT&T’s shelves been bumped up to Windows Mobile 6.1, but that the folks back at home could get in on the fun too. If you’ve got a Helio Ocean… Read More

  • Buzzwords: Pantech Slate is world's thinnest QWERTY phone (but Matrix looks nicer)

    Buzzwords: Pantech Slate is world's thinnest QWERTY phone (but Matrix looks nicer)

    Here’s another phone that’s destined to be bought by dozens of people, the Pantech Slate. This AT&T-branded device, which is due for release later this month, comes with all the normal (for 2006) fixings: a 1.3-megapixel camera, e-mail, IM, yada yada. Supposedly it’s the thinnest QWERTY device out there. You really do wonder, though, as everything these days is thin to… Read More

  • Pantech launches the Matrix for AT&T, looks like an updated Ocean

    Pantech launches the Matrix for AT&T, looks like an updated Ocean

    Available starting today is the Pantech Matrix for AT&T. It features the same dual sliding keyboard from their Helio Ocean design in a much better looking form factor. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the pill design, but this new QWERTY keyboard looks a lot easier to use. It features a 1.3-megapixel camera, XM radio, Bluetooth and an MP3 player. Get it now in blue, green and red for $80. Read More

  • Unboxing: Pantech C610 for AT&T

    Unboxing: Pantech C610 for AT&T

    Pantech’s C610 clamshell was announced today for AT&T and we were lucky enough to have one dropped off at the office. The C610 isn’t a bad looking phone to be honest and is well equipped. It can tap into the 3G network for downloading music, games and watching TV clips. It even gives directions with built-in GPS. Memory is expandable via microSD and also includes Bluetooth. Read More

  • Hands on: Pantech C610 for AT&T

    Hands on: Pantech C610 for AT&T

    Pantech and AT&T just announced the C610 a few hours ago, and we’ve already splayed one out for the world to see. For only setting you back $49 bucks with contract (or $0, in some markets), the handset is surprisingly easily on the eyes. It’s obviously not going to be a bar-setter, but with 3G, assisted GPS, AT&T Video Share, microSD, Bluetooth, and a 1.3 megapixel… Read More

  • Helio Ocean 2 in the wild

    Helio Ocean 2 in the wild

    It seems a video of the Ocean 2 was up last night, but that’s clearly not the case now since we can only provide a screen shot. Not a whole lot to glean from the Heliocity message board, but it appears the d-pad is touch sensitive and the “Helio” is backlit. Looking forward to this upgrade. Read More

    Pantech Duo now in red, just in time for Valentine's Day (barf)

    AT&T is all about red devices lately and, of course, they’re pushing them hard for Valentine’s day. Already in the red line-up is Samsung’s Blackjack II, LG’s Shine and BlackBerry’s Curve. Enter Pantech’s Duo. Yeah, it’s still the so-so Windows Mobile device we reviewed a short time ago. A $99 smartphone isn’t too shabby. Product Page Read More

    Pantech's "Romantic Wave" – a good phone for your significant other

    Feeling loverly? This cute little phone would go great with that purse, although if your girlfriend is a gearhead she may be disappointed. But who can resist that little pink jewel? Every time you send, it’s like a baby Rudolph is giving your thumb an Eskimo kiss. The only stat I could gleam was that the thing only has a 1.3-megapixel camera, so despite having a price tag topping $400… Read More

  • Pantech Duo Review

    Pantech Duo Review

    What would a week of “Smartphones Now” be without a review of a smartphone? A terrible one, I’m sure. So what are we going to look at today? The Duo from Pantech for AT&T. Not exactly the hottest smartphone on the market, but it does have a few qualities that are quite endearing. I’m also jaded and hate all phones to begin with. Heh. That’s not entirely true.

    Hands on with the Pantech Duo

    After a dreadful day of sitting on the couch, sleeping on the couch and playing Assassin’s Creed from the couch since I was under the weather yesterday, I return to the CrunchGear/TechCrunch office to find a UPS box waiting for me. What could it be?! Yeah, I know you already know since it’s blatantly obvious in the headlines but bear with me. So what I have here is the Duo, which… Read More

  • AT&T's Duo official today

    AT&T's Duo official today

    The Pantech Duo (aka It’s-not-the-ocean) has been officialized today by AT&T. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone is a true world phone, and will work in most countries supporting GSM. Like the Helio Ocean, the Duo has dual-sliding keypads, one T9, and one’s QWERTY. We’re big fans of the Ocean for its design, but it’ll be interesting to see how the form factor carries… Read More

    New Pantech C150 Mobile Phone Available Today

    Starting today, AT&T customers will be able to purchase the Pantech C150 camera phone. For what it’s worth, the C150 was a recipient of “a 2006 iF design award for international excellence in brand design.” Apparently, this is quite an award as it’s been going on for over 50 years and entries come in from all over the world and number in the thousands. I guess… Read More

  • Pantech Maglev Floats And Amazes…I Think

    Amidst the recent and much needed surge of mobile phones shedding weight. Pantech hopes to stand out with their newest phone that employs magnetic levitation. Maglev, as it’s called, basically allows an object to hover over another object without any physical contact and is held in place by the magnetic fields. Most slider phones are designed with springs, which make them fatty and… Read More

  • Helio is Off to See the Wizard

    that Helio was likely preparing to release the Pantech PN-810 slider. The rumor today is that the new device will be dubbed the Helio Oz. With the Helio Heat just out of the furnace and the Drift standing strong, Helio is positioning itself firmly in the MVNO market. I continue to be intrigued by this, heavily financed, up-and-coming company. We don’t know when this device will be… Read More
