At this year’s CES, AT&T introduced a complete set of Android devices destined for the carrier’s LTE network. Alongside devices from Samsung and Sony, AT&T introduced the Pantech Burst smartphone and the Element tablet, both with 4G LTE support. These two are now available online at the carrier.
The Pantech Burst is going for $49.99 with a two-year contract (or $399.99 for the phone only) and it packs a five-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, a battery of 1650 mAh, 16 GB internal storage expandable via microSD card, a four-inch Super AMOLED display of WVGA resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and of course the 4G LTE-capable radio. The platform is Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The Pantech Element goes for $299.99 on a two-year contract (and for $449.99 for the tablet only) and packs an eight-inch display with resolution of 1024 x 768, five-megapixel rear camera, two-megapixel webcam, 1GB of RAM, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal memory expandable via microSD card, a 6400 mAh battery, LTE connectivity, and Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
If you decide to purchase both Pantech devices, instead of paying $349.98 with contract you’ll only have to pay $250, saving $99.98. Neat!
