Pantech announced the Discover today, a high-end handset for AT&T. We were able to spend a few moments with it and here are our first impressions.
AT&T today announced the Pantech Discover, a new smartphone that has a 4.8-inch 720p HD display and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Discover includes a 12.6-megapixel camera with 4x zoom that can capture 1080p HD video. The Discover will be the first AT&T smartphone pre-loaded with the AT&T DriveMode application, which is meant to help prevent distracted driving. It also ships with the Easy Experience mode for first-time smartphone owners, which simplifies some of the home screen and settings arrangements. Other features of the Discover include NFC, LTE, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB on-board memory, 3D surround sound, 2,100 mAh battery, and SwiftKey. The Pantech Discover goes on sale January 11 for $49.99 with a new agreement.
