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.
