Junk

I tried this phone out in the store today, and I can honestly say this is the cheapest built phone I have ever seen. I don't know how they can get away with calling it "durable". It's quite ugly as well. I'm not sure what the heck pantec was thinking when they approved this design.

QWERTY Android

Currently holding onto my Motorola Backflip until someone realizes people actually like QWERTY keyboard on their smartphones.

Granted, the crossover is an upgrade to something like my phone. But, I want something powerful like an Atrix or an Infuse with a fully tactile QWERTY.

Blackberry did a pretty good job with the Torch. But, I want a QWERTY that is made for viewing the internet letterbox style.

I'll give you industrial designers a hint, make it just like the LG Quantum, but with a screen the size of the Infuse or Inspire.

Qwerty Android

Even though this is an entry level andoid phone and it's not even as good as a Motorola Bravo, I like the direction.

Personally, I'm not a fan of having to touch a screen a lot. It kind of freaks me out, and I'm always cleaning it! I currently have a Motorola Backflip, and I'm holding out until someone makes an Infuse or Atrix level phone with QWERTY. (When I was a technical illustrator, I kept Windex by my monitor.)

So I will again state it here for those of you listening. For the love of God, please make a powerful Android phone with a slide out QWERTY!

But not like that butt ugly Droid Pro! I want a slide out so I can view the screen as in cinema, (aka letterbox), view.

Pantech

What are the odds this ugly looking "Pancrap" will have a resistive touchscreen and will most likely be the only Android phone on the market that uses a properitory charger instead of a micro USB like every other Pantech, sometimes you wonder how some companies stay in business when they just make crappy products over and over and over again...

Why?

Why would I purchase a Pantech Android over, say, an HTC, Samsung or Motorola? I can respect Pantech for trying to garner market share, but I just don't see it happening. While Pantech isn't new to the wireless handset world by any means, consumer faith has been shaken by terrible phones such as the Matrix, Duo and Ease. If I were them, I would stick to building components for other manufacturers as they once did. It seems like a better and more lucrative move than attempting (poorly) to build a brand image and hang with the big dogs. Meh.
