Pantech Breeze III
AT&T this week started selling the Pantech breEZe III, a minor update to the breEZe II. According to Pantech, upgraded features include more advanced voice recognition, and improved sound quality thanks to Audience earSmart background noise suppression. A pill reminder feature has also been added, and the hearing-aid compatibility rating has been improved. The phone is otherwise similar to the breEZe II it replaces, sporting the same clamshell design with three indicator lights on the outside and three dedicated speed-dial keys on the inside. The breEZe series targets older users and anyone who wants a simple, easy phone with big keys, big text, and an emphasis on voice. Like the breEZe II, the breEZe III includes both a simple mode and an advanced mode, and some advanced features such as 3G data, camera, memory card slot, and music player. The breEZe III is available now for $99 with two-year contract; $49 after mail-in rebate.
