Pantech Pocket, prepaid ZTE Avail round out AT&T's Android

Pantech Pocket and ZTE Avail intro at CTIA

AT&T rounded out a slew of Android phones with a pair of more affordable models, including just its second for prepaid users. Regular subscribers get the Pantech Pocket, which carries an unusually wide four-inch, 600x800 display intended to improve browsing while staying small enough to be usable one-handed. The carrier is unusually short on performance details but does promise HSPA+ Internet access, a five-megapixel camera with HD video, and Android 2.3.

The device has just 600MB of internal storage but carries a microSDHC slot with a 2GB card already set.

AT&T's least expensive model, the ZTE-made Avail, is intended to raise the bar for the prepaid GoPhone service. Even as it has a more modest 3.5-inch display, it still has a five-megapixel autofocusing camera and Android 2.3. A combination of 512MB of built-in space and a microSDHC slot (2GB included) make it more usable out of the box.

Like the phones unveiled Tuesday outside of the Atrix 2, neither the Pocket nor the Avail has a price or a ship date other than a general fall window. The Avail may cost more up front but should be less expensive without the need for a regular plan.
