Pantech and AT&T today revealed the Renue, a "quick messaging device" with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and rugged design made from 67% recyclable materials. The phone doesn't require a smartphone data plan, but uses Qualcomm's BREW-MP platform to provide smartphone-like features, including a touch screen and multiple customizable home screens. The Renue is similar to the pantech Swift, but with a larger screen, better camera, and the rugged shell. The Renue is tested and rated to military specs for sand, dust, extreme temperatures, humidity, vibration, and sun. The phone is available starting today for $70 with two-year contract.
