I get a lot of stuff for review and like to share. Three days ago Pantech announced their new Double Keyboard Slider messaging phone called the Reveal. of course I got one ;) so I figured I’d share some quick picture with you… I’ve also included the full press release as well..
— Pantech Wireless, Inc., – the U.S.-based subsidiary of Pantech Group, one of Korea’s largest mobile phone manufacturers – today announced the launch of Reveal, a full-feature double-keyboard phone, optimized for texting and emailing friends, flirts or family members, and surfing the Web. Reveal is the first in AT&T’s new line of quick messaging phones to hit stores, and is another example of an exciting Pantech handset at an attractive price. Available today in a glossy red or blue, Reveal is a perfect gift for any trendsetting teen or tween.
I’ve only been using it for a two days, but I love phones with keyboards, all of my last few phones have had them. So far I can’t say too much about it, it’s easy to use, the screen is nice and large, and it’s lightweight. Signal is strong, but that’s why I’m on AT&T, they’re the 3rd carrier I’ve tried and the first I can get calls in my house so I’m sticking with them…
Anyway, here’s a bunch of pictures:
Reveal is a slim, responsive slider that features an open-faced numeric keypad on the front of the phone which glides up to uncover a full keyboard underneath. Uniquely, both sets of keys stay active simultaneously, giving users fast access to numbers and letters at the same time – providing a truly quick messaging experience. Ideal for updating statuses with new pictures and videos, texting, IMing or emailing friends, Reveal keeps everyone connected to their digital life at every moment of the day. All of this happens at the speed of 3G, which makes playing and managing music and videos a breeze.
Reveal is one of the first phones to come preloaded with AT&T’s new HTML mobile browser and att.net home page, which combines the best of full and fast HTML browsing with custom features for personalizing favorite bookmarks and local searches.
Reveal features a wide range of cool options that include:
· Two, Always-active Keyboards – Full QWERTY and numeric keyboards stay active when both are open to make writing messages with numbers and letters easier than ever.
· Music and Video – Discover, play, store and manage your favorite music and video using AT&T’s portfolio of mobile music services, including Napster & eMusic Mobile.
· 3G Speeds – The nation’s fastest 3G network makes browsing the Web, updating your status, and streaming music and video fast and enjoyable.
· Navigation – AT&T Navigator provides voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions in real time.
· Video Recording and Picture Taking – Take and share pics and video clips using AT&T’s Video Share calling.
“We set out to do something different with Reveal, and we are confident that we have created a phone that provides our customers a fantastic messaging and browsing experience,” said Patrick Beattie, vice president of sales and marketing, Pantech Wireless, Inc. “Also, by including two full keyboards that work at the same time, users can now maximize voice calls and data use.”
