Pantech’s Crossover to launch June 5th

You can find many Pantech options within the country and specifically over at At&t. Something that the U.S. has yet to see is a Pantech model that runs Android. If your unfamiliar with Pantech they are known for making solid hardware and intuitive proprietary software that makes their devices perfect for the mid to entry level users. Today an announcement from At&t and Pantech put the first ever Android based Pantech in the hands of At&t customers for cheap. The Pantech Crossover passed through the FCC as the P8000 way back in December, today it becomes official via an At&t press release. Let’s take a look at the new entry level Android via Pantech.

The Crossover has a unique design and is being branded as the “Perfect [model] for first-time smart phone users”. The Pantech Crossover is the company’s first Android device and will ship with the latest in Android version 2.2 or Froyo. The Crossover sports an entry level 600 MHz processor and can support up to 32 GB of external SD memory. The standard side slider build pops open to expose a 4 row full QWERTY keyboard for that tactical input. The Pantech Crossover’s uses a 3.1 inch touch screen that will be perfect for a full web experience from its browser as well as perfect for multimedia viewing. The sporty new Pantech Crossover rocks a 3 megapixel camera that features a digital zoom as well as video recording capabilities. You can also expect all the standards such as Wi-Fi 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, Bluetooth, an Accelerometer, GPS with Navigation software as well as standard micro USB charging and syncing ports and a universal 3.5 mm headset jack. You will also have access to all of the applications the Android Market has to offer and many more. This excellent Pantech Crossover is scheduled to launch June 5th and will cost you about $70 bucks on a new contract, pretty good deal for an Android device.

The Pantech Crossover is surely no Atrix or Thunderbolt however, it is a solid entry level Android with a sporty look and feel that will fit very well into a seemingly slacking mid to entry level Android niche with At&t.
