AT&T’s Pantech Slate available now – only 9.9mm in thickness

Pantech Slate C530, first announced by AT&T together with three other new QWERTY phones, is now available for purchase from the largest North American mobile carrier.

Presented as the world’s thinnest handset to feature a full QWERTY keyboard, Pantech Slate can be bought for $49.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate and the signing of a 2-yr contract agreement. Its no commitment price is of $249.99.    

The Slate measures 4.2 x 2.5 x 0.39 inches (107 x 63.5 x 9.9 millimeters), so it is, indeed, very slim. Unfortunately, apart from its QWERTY keyboard, the handset doesn’t offer too many features, being an entry-level device.       

 

The full specs of Pantech Slate include:

  • Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz
  • 2.2 inch TFT display with 176 x 220 pixels and 260K colors
  • Email, IM
  • Web browser, MEdia Net
  • Stereo Bluetooth, but only the 1.2 version
  • 20MB of internal memory and no MicroSD card slot  
  • 1.3 MP camera
  • USB (a USB cable is not included in the package, though)
  • Talk time: up to 3 hours
  • Standby time: up to 10 days

You can buy a Pantech Slate C530 either from AT&T’s stores, or online, if you hit the carrier’s official website.

    I bought this phone and AT&T will not honor the rebate. I have a 2 year contract, unlimited web mail etc… all the qualifications for the rebate. But to no avail I never received the paper work for the rebate and was told I waited too late
