Pantech C150 at ATT
AT&T today quietly listed the Pantech C150 as an option for subscribers. The Korean-made candybar phone escapes stereotypes of budget phones with a sleek, all-white design that measures exactly half an inch thick. Its VGA camera is simple but includes a flash for better focus in dark scenes; Bluetooth is also a relative luxury for the class. Internet access is basic with GPRS, which AT&T uses to offer e-mail and instant messages across AIM, Windows Live, and Yahoo Messenger.
Price is not an issue with the phone, according to the carrier, as the C150 is offered for free when bought online with a new two-year contract. Buying the phone independently of any service plan raises the price to $200.
