Aladdin comng to AT&T
A Monday leak has revealed that Pantech's Aladdin handset may be coming to wireless provider AT&T in mid-August. The candybar device has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for texting, which is its main mission, as it is otherwise fairly basic in its specifications. There is a 1.3-megapixel camera, assisted GPS functionality, stereo Bluetooth support and a Video Share mode for one-way calls. It should support protected Windows Media tracks in addition to usual mobile formats.
Connecting to GPRS and EDGE data networks will allow users to download music from Napster and eMusic or get driving directions through the AT&T Navigator service. The Aladdin's 2.2-inch external display sports a 320x240 resolution.
Pricing for the Aladdin at AT&T is unknown at this time. [via Engadget]
