Pantech Link to launch at AT&T on April 18th
Pantech announced on Friday that its Link handset will be available from AT&T starting on April 18th. The device will fall under AT&T's quick messaging phones, thanks to its full hardware QWERTY keyboard and web browser. The device is unusually slim for the price and category at less than 0.4 inches thick and sports a 2.4-inch screen with a 320x240 resolution.
The Link can access AT&T's Social Net, Mobile Share and Navigator services. Social Net lets users quickly view and upload photos to popular social networks. Playlists can be made using Napster and eMusic. There is also a built-in 1.3-megapixel camera with video recording support.
The Link will be available at AT&T for a short amount of time for $10 on a contract, albeit only after a rebate and attaching at least a $20 messaging plan to the core voice service.
