Pantech Pocket first impressions, pics
SAN DIEGO–While we liked what we saw of the Motorola Atrix 2, we were probably more intrigued by the Pantech Pocket, which was also announced for AT&T this week. It’s a lower-end handset, yes, but its unusually wide form factor caught our eye.
Which is exactly why Pantech made it look that way. We had a closer hands-on look at the Pantech Pocket today, and one of the reasons the Pocket is wider than other Android handsets is precisely to stand out among all the rectangular black boxes that make up the Android landscape. It has a 4-inch SVGA display, but with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The result is a device that looks more like a miniature tablet than a phone. That sounds strange, but we admit we were enamored with its oddball look. Pantech has also designed the Pocket with a textured surface on the back and the sides, which adds to the handset’s durability. The Pocket might not be for everyone, but its wide, rounded aesthetic left a good impression on us.
