The newest AT&T 4G LTE smartphone, the Pantech Burst, is now available. The inexpensive Android phone costs $50 for AT&T customers with a new two-year contract, but boasts some advanced features.
The Burst is the first 4G-enabled handset from Pantech to be released by AT&T, and the price itself is good enough for smartphone customers to seriously consider -- it's well-below what this carrier's other LTE-enabled smartphones are selling for.
It is shipping with Android OS 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) and will run on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Customers will be able to use the 16GB of on-board storage, or add up to 32GB of additional space to this economical phone. Media can be added on to the phone courtesy of a microSD hub located on the side of the phone.
The 4-inch screen sports a 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution on a Super AMOLED display, giving it brighter colors and better contrast than traditional LCDs.
Users of the Pantech Burst will be able to record HD 720p video with noise suppression on its 5MP rear-facing camera. A VGA front-facing one will enable videoconferencing.
This smartphone will also come pre-loaded with the Kindle eReader app and AT&T Navigator, in addition to the standard Android collection of software for communications, entertainment, and productivity.
AT&T launched a deal that will sell the Pantech Element, its newest tablet, and the Pantech Burst for only $250 when purchased together. This sale will be available for a limited time only.
