AT&T Introduces The Pantech Crossover
AT&T has just announced the Pantech Crossover. The smartphone carries entry level specs but includes the Android operating system and is geared towards budget users looking to get maximum value for their dollar. The phone carries a modest 3.1″ display and is powered by a 600MHz processor.
The built-in camera doesn’t take the sharpest photos, but with three megapixels, it’s enough to capture the moment.
The phone also comes with a 2GB microSD card for storage, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to tap out a few texts when you’re stuck in bumper to bumper traffic (just kidding, don’t text while driving!) Users will enjoy the textured back and rubberized corners, providing a no-slip grip.
With Android 2.2, Froyo, you can bet that people will find $69.99 to shell out for this new device. Of course, you’ll be bound by ball and chain to AT&T for two years, so keep that in mind before diving in, head first. If you’re a tough cookie and can deal with AT&T, I suggest going for it. I currently use Android 2.2 and enjoy the mobile operating system as a whole. Will it be outdated in two years? Absolutely, but it will provide a no-frills experience, allow you to access your most desired apps, such as Twitter and Facebook. With social media at your fingertips, who needs the latest tech?
