AT&T has just started selling the Pantech Impact handset today, available in two colors, bright blue and soft pink. This is a brand new form factor for AT&T’s line of messaging phones, since Impact comes with two screens and a full hidden keyboard.
Pantech’s new device packs a high-gloss faceplate with a haptic response touchpad and it’s filled with social networking features. The phone uses a full QWERTY keyboard and a bunch of shortcut keys that enable one touch access to instant messaging features, email and all sorts of apps.
The second full color display will be perfect for watching videos, viewing pictures and browsing the web. GPS is also on board, as well as side speakers, a mobile HTML browser, a responsive touchpad and 3G connectivity, via AT&T.
AT&T Navigator will handle the voice guided turn by turn navigation function, while video recording and picture taking will be aided by multimedia messaging and AT&T Mobile email.
