The smartphone will run Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread), and be powered by a 600MHz processor. A 2GB microSD card and a 3.2MP camera are going to be included.

The Pantech Pocket, on the other hand, is going to have a simple tablet shape built around a 4-inch SVGA (800 x 600) screen, a higher resolution than the more typical WVGA (800 x 480). It will also feature a 5MP camera.

AT&T has not yet revealed what the prices for these three handsets are going to be. That information might have to wait until Sunday’s debut.
