AT&T to get Pantech C630

Pantech showed its C630 candybar handset to the media on Thursday evening and the handset is scheduled to be offered by provider AT&T starting in December. The handset maker has asked that photos of the device taken on Thursday night be embargoed until its official announcement next month, and official specifications are likewise unavailable. An AT&T spokesperson at the event did confirm the C630 will run on Symbian, however.

Preliminary specifications for the C630 include unspecified but advanced GSM, a 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth support. The phone will also be capable of playing MP3 audio files stored on a microSD card. It will have access to Internet Yellow Pages, e-mail, instant messaging, and take advantage of AT&T's Video Exchange and Video Sharing services. Pricing is expected to be in the $50 range with a contract and after rebate, similar to the current Pantech handset on offer at AT&T, the C610, as well as the LG Slate, both of which also support 3G data networks.
