    In this video we demonstrate the software of the Pantech Burst, which ships, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a few enhanced interfaces by Pantech. Many of the apps that come preloaded on the Burst are trials or lite versions, but Pantech has added quite a few useful utilities. AT&T has also added their own apps in the mix, but thankfully many of the their apps can be removed by uninstalling. This open approach will probably appeal to more of our power users or anyone that finds proprietary software obnoxious. Stay tuned for a final review coming up next. If you missed it check out the ...

    In this video we demonstrate the hardware of the new AT&T Pantech Burst. Over the years Pantech has not impressed much in terms of hardware but the Pantech Burst has some great specification especially for the budget price tag. The Pantech Burst similar features to high-end Android and is capable of outperforming some of them. The screen of the Burst is a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display (800 x 480) behind a glass capacitive multi-touch digitizer. The dimensions of the Burst are 65.2 x 126.5 x 11.4 mm and weigh 122 grams with the battery included. The internal memory is 16GB and can ...

    We've been keeping our eye on the Pantech Breakout for a little while now, expecting it to launch as the first budget-priced Android using Verizon's high-speed LTE 4G network. Last week we heard that the phone would likely be released this week, on Thursday, September 22. With just a few days to spare, Verizon has finally announced the Breakout, confirming the September 22 launch rumor, and giving the phone a $100 on-contract price tag. You may not be swayed by the Pantech brand name alone, but look past that to the Breakout's hardware, and you'll find some decent specs for what's becoming ...

    AT&T's Jeff Bradley, Senior Vice President of Mobile Devices, talked about the carrier's plans for smartphones earlier today, mentioning several upcoming releases we've already heard about, like the HP Veer next week and the Windows Phone 7 HTC HD7S. Bradley also re-confirmed AT&T's commitment to allowing non-Android-Market app installs, like we've seen with the Infuse 4G. One tidbit that's new to us, though, is his revelation that AT&T will have a new Pantech-made Android arriving next month. Details are very sparse at this point; Bradley remarked that the Pantech is a "cool little ...

    In this video we unbox the new Pantech Burst for AT&T. The Gingerbread powered Android is capable of accessing the 4G LTE data speeds in limited markets around the country. In the past Pantech has not wowed many smartphone enthusists with their mediocre designs and build quality, but the new Burst might make a few heads turn. Included in the box are the basic essentials to get up and running such as; the Burst itself, a USB wall charger, a micro USB charging/sync cable, the battery cover (which comes in two colors), a micro SIM card, and the 1650mAh Li-ion battery. A few items missing that ...

    Earlier this month we got a look at the Pantech Breakout, setting itself up for a home on Verizon LTE. Now a new leak gives us some details about its planned release, which is looking like it could happen on September 22. This notice for retailers informs them that the Breakout will launch in all channels on the twenty-second. It also gives us a spec breakdown on the phone, but there's nothing really new there; we had heard about most of the important ones before, and this information simply confirms them. That means the phone will have a 1GHz single-core processor, four-inch WVGA display, ...

    South Korean smartphone manufacturer Pantech has just released a new device called Pantech Sky Vega Xpress which is advertised to feature Vega X DDR2 RAM memory chips that should be 1.5 times faster than other alternatives on the market, aiming towards PC-like speeds. The handset with model numbers IM-A710K / IM-A720L is running Google Android 2.2 Froyo mobile operating system and sports a second generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1GHz (MSM8255) – just like the one to be found on the T-Mobile myTouch 4G. There's also a 4-inch TFT WVGA screen, DDR2 RAM memory of (yet) ...

    This past Monday, AT&T spilled the beans on the upcoming availability for a trio of Androids, revealing that the Pantech Pocket, Samsung Doubletime, and Samsung Captivate Glide would arrive for sale on November 20. What it didn't share at the time was what we'd have to pay for any of those handsets. With that date nearly upon us, the carrier has finally revealed some prices for the phones. It should be no surprise that the Captivate Glide is the highest-priced of the group. After all, it's the only one of these three with a dual-core processor and luxuries like a front-facing camera. AT&T ...

    Earlier this month, we heard that Pantech would be releasing its first Android phone in the States on AT&T in June, an unnamed ruggedized QWERTY slider. Just this week, we looked at a roadmap for upcoming AT&T smartphones, including the Pantech Bannik P8000. This same model, minus the codename, earlier appeared at the FCC in late 2010. Now all these pieces are finally coming together, with AT&T announcing the phone as the Pantech Crossover. While the press release doesn't mention the model number, enough of the Crossover's specs match up with what we expected for the Bannik, and the images ...

    At first glance, Pantech's Vega LTE appears nearly identical to its Vega Racer, a phone we looked at back in May. They're actually not that far off from each other, but there are a few key changes that make the Vega LTE a bit more exciting. While the Racer has a 4.3-inch WVGA display, the Vega LTE raises the bar, moving up to a 4.5-inch screen and bumping the resolution all the way up to a slightly-better-than-720p 1280x800. We know this kind of display is quickly looking like it's about to become positively common, but we're still impressed manufacturers are cramming so many pixels into ...

    Pantech isn't known as a huge player in the smartphone world, at least not in the West. The company's first Android destined for the US was released earlier this year, the Pantech Crossover, a QWERTY slider on AT&T. Rather than continue to crank out low-end models in the States like the Crossover with its 600MHz processor (we know it can do better; we've seen much more powerful Pantechs arrive in Asia), it now looks like Pantech might be ready to step up its game, with the publication of FCC documentation revealing a Pantech destined for Verizon LTE, apparently called the Apollo. Apollo ...

    This fall, we saw AT&T's LTE network start with a bang, offering subscribers not one, but two LTE-equipped Androids to choose from in early November. Since then, we've heard a lot about additional smartphones planned for the growing 4G network. Today, AT&T really let the floodgates open, revealing, among other new products, half-a-dozen LTE-enabled Androids. Some of these Androids on their way to AT&T are models we've had our eye on for some time. Take, for instance, the over-sized Samsung Galaxy Note, which we've spotted already with its AT&T badging and had been expecting the carrier to ...

    Midway through October, AT&T announced plans to bring five new Android smartphones to its network. While we knew what models would be coming, and had access to hardware specs on the lot, we lacked a more complete picture of how AT&T planned to introduce them. The carrier has today turned to Twitter to update us all on the release schedule for three of those handsets, announcing availability beginning November 20. So, what's on the menu? The three handsets set to debut with AT&T on November 20 are the dual-screen Samsung Doubletime, the QWERTY slider Samsung Captivate Glide, and the ...

    Pantech hasn't had much to say about smartphones in the US lately; after a lull, the company should be re-emerging on the scene next month, thanks to the planned release of a ruggedized QWERTY slider on AT&T. Just because we don't get to see them in the west doesn't mean that the company hasn't been busy with plenty of other smartphones, destined for release in Asian markets. The latest of these we've heard about looks like it could be a real powerhouse: an Android called the Vega Racer powered by a Qualcomm MSM8660 dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon. In addition to the raw processing power the ...

    Among quite a few other handsets Verizon is expected to release this month (Bliss, Vigor, Enlighten, Stratosphere, etc.) are the Samsung Illusion and Pantech Breakout LTE. As its name implies, Breakout is a 4G-capable slate tipped as having a four-inch WVGA screen and 1GHz single-core processor; a five-megapixel camera, front-facing webcam, and 512MB of memory are also rumored features. One of the highlights is said to be Breakout's tethering prowess: supposedly it can perform as a mobile hotspot for up to 10 devices simultaneously over LTE. Less is known about the Illusion, although we ...
