The Pantech Pursuit II for you from AT&T, where it will arrive on the carrier this coming July 17th, costing a mere $49.99 with a two-year agreement.
It has a similar rounded design to its predecessor, plus what looks to be a similar 2.8-inch QVGA touch-screen display. However, it has a vertical sliding keyboard instead of a horizontal one. Other features of this BREW phone include a 2-megapixel camera and camcorder, quad-band GSM and 3G support, GPS, and a microSD card slot that can take up to 32GB cards.
Colors available are pink or green, perfect to be in tune with this summer. Seems like the perfect ‘starter phone’ for beginners who are about to upgrade their old school Nokia to something more. Checkout the press release bellow.
