Pantech today announced the Vybe, a quick messaging device that features both a touch screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The Vybe, which is an update to the Ease, includes a 3.2-inch 400 x 240-pixel display with three customizable home screens. The Vybe can also be put into Easy Mode, which simplifies the home screens and menus for inexperience users. The Vybe uses a proprietary, Java-based operating system. The Vybe offers a 3-megapixel camera and can be launched quickly thanks to a dedicated button. The Vybe also includes shortcuts to social media apps, and a number of AT&T services, such as Drive Mode, Navigator, Address Book, Family Map, and myAT&T. Other hardware features include a 1230mAh battery, and support for HSPA data and Bluetooth. The Pantech Vybe will be available online and in stores beginning May 23. AT&T is asking $30 with a new two-year contract.
