Review: Pantech Matrix Pro
The Matrix Pro has Windows Media Player included, which doesn't appear to have any new or differentiating features that set it apart from other WinMo 6.1 phones. It works exactly the same.
There is no 3.5mm or even 2.5mm headphone jack. You'll have to use an adapter if you wish to use wired headphones with the Matrix Pro. You can assign the buttons to take on different actions to control the music player functions if you wish, but often its easier to use the D-pad to make your selections on-screen.
The Matrix Pro is also loaded with a bunch of AT&T's music services, such as Music ID, XM Radio, Pandora and even Music Videos. MobiVJ works exactly as MobiTV does, but focuses on providing only music video content. An unlimited data subscription is highly recommended.
Quality of music playback was pretty poor through the speaker and only slightly better through headphones. It's pretty clear that Pantech doesn't expect you to listen to much music with the Matrix Pro.
