Pantech announce impending release of their first ever Android smartphone
Mobile phone manufacturer Pantech are throwing their hat into the ring, after announcing the impending release of their first ever Android smartphone – the Pantech Crossover.
The device will enter the market in the United States and is designed to be an entry-level Android smartphone; it will be released for mobile phone operator AT&T. The device has already been described as the perfect handset for first-time smartphone users.
The key features that the device will incorporate will include a slide-out full keyboard, a 3.1-inch touchscreen display, a 600 MHz processor, a 3-megapixel digital camera (with camcorder function included), Mobile Hotspot support and the incredibly popular AllSport GPS app; the Pantech Crossover is also expected to ship with an Android 2.2 operating system. Other useful features include access to Wi-Fi and mobile hot-spits, allowing access for up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
The device is described as being extremely durable, allowing it to “go wherever you go”; it will also have rubberised corners and a textured back cover, which will serve to enhance its rugged design.
Vice president of product planning for Pantech Wireless, Wyatt Whaley, said: “Crossover is the latest addition to our popular lineup of AT&T mobile phones,”
“As our first Android™ smartphone for AT&T customers, we’ve made sure that Crossover has all of the features our users consider indispensible and more – a full keyboard for messaging, a touchscreen for apps and games, easy access to favorite social media pages and many others. Crossover is a simple, sporty Android device for people on the move and it will be a central part of this year’s exciting Dew Tour.” added Mr Whaley.
It is uncertain whether Pantech has any plans to move the device into the market for customers in the United Kingdom.
