Pantech 3G Phone at FCC
Pantech is preparing a 3G wireless phone that should be available through AT&T, according to a newly discovered FCC filing. The Pantech C600 clamshell will offer high-speed mobile Internet through HSDPA (and UMTS for European roaming) but will have relatively modest specifications elsewhere to keep the price low. A VGA camera, Bluetooth, and a microSD slot for media storage are the extent of the secondary features.
While no release date has been uncovered for the phone as part of its public appearance, the end of a confidentiality agreement plus the recent update of the manual to reflect AT&T branding suggests the phone should be available within the next few months at the latest. Full photos follow after the break.
