Pantech Jest 2, Pantech Hotshot hands-on
SAN DIEGO–As we walked by the PCD booth here at CTIA, we noticed that Pantech had two phones up for display that we haven’t seen before. They were the Pantech Jest 2 and the Pantech Hotshot.
The Pantech Jest 2 is slightly curvier and rounder than the Pantech Jest messaging phone we reviewed last year, and the screen size is a touch smaller at 2.4 inches.
The biggest improvement that the Jest 2 has over its predecessor is that it has a dual-mode GSM/CDMA chipset so it can be used internationally. This is one of a few feature phones (non-smartphones) in Verizon’s stable that has this capability. The features are otherwise largely the same as before. They include a 2-megapixel camera, an MP3 player with V Cast Music support, GPS with VZ Navigator, and more. We’ve heard that the Pantech Jest 2 will be free after a two-year agreement and a mail-in rebate.
