AT&T announced the latest addition to its LTE smartphone portfolio - the Pantech Flex. Following the footsteps of its well equipped and affordable relative, the Pantech Burst, the newcomer aims at first time smartphone buyers by combining solid specs, ease of use, and an affordable price tag.
The Pantech Flex features a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU (likely a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4) and a 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED display. There is an 8MP camera, capable of recording full HD video on the back, and a 2MP front-facing snapper. The rugged-looking handset tips the scale at 130 grams.
Software wise, the Pantech Flex boots Android 4.0 ICS. In order to become more appealing for first time smartphone buyers, the Flex features Pantech's proprietary Easy Experience. The latter offers new users smartphone functionality, dressed in feature phone attire.
The Pantech Flex will be available for AT&T on September 16. It will be priced at the sweet $49.99 with a two-year contract.
I agree with the first poster. Ugly design, ugly UI! How did they manage to take a perfectly good ICS UI and change it into, and I quote GSMArena: "smartphone functionality, dressed in feature phone attire". WWWWTTTTFFF?!?!? How did...
looks pretty nice for the price, same specs as iphoney but half the price...
I have the Pantech Burst and Love it. This would be nice to taste. I recommend.
