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
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.
