Unboxing Video And Review: Pantech Pocket On AT&T

If you’ve been following thedroidguy for a while than you know that I love unique phones. Although it didn’t do so well and we knocked it a bit, the Kyocera Echo was a phone that I thought was great because of it’s unique form factor. I also used a Droid Pro for the better part of a year as my main phone. Again, not a superphone, just at the time unique.

The same is the case here for the Pantech Pocket. When we first met with Pantech at CTIA in October in San Diego the thing that attracted me to this phone was it’s unique shape. Rather than a 4.3″ or 4.5″ rectangular shaped phone the Pantech Pocket is a 4 inch square phone.

The 4″ square display has a 4:3 aspect ratio making it great for consuming content. The resolution is 600×800 and it’s a capacitive multi touch display.  The square shape makes it perfect for movies, tv programs, playing games and GPS. The way the maps consume the screen in either AT&T Navigator or Google Maps, it feels like a stand alone GPS unit.

Pantech Pocket Announced By AT&T

AT&T is smooth like butter here at CTIA pushing as many announcements out ahead of the official kick-off later this morning.  The next device announced is the new Android powered Pantech Pocket.

Pantech was once known for only their messaging phones. In fact for the first two years of the Android revolution, every time we would ask Pantech about Android they had nothing to show. Now there is the Pantech Crossover on AT&T and the Pantech Breakout on Verizon Wireless.

The Pocket has a mini-tablet form factor and is more square than rectangular in a portrait position.  The 4 inch screen on the device is 800×600 resolution and it packs a 5 mega pixel camera with a flash and HD recording.
