AT&T Pantech Swift messaging phone tags along latest features for $70

AT&T Pantech Swift 01

A convenient and stylish device, the AT&T Pantech Swift phone’s compact form factor and modest price tag make it pocket-friendly in every sense. Meant for heavy texters, it comes with a full QWERTY keypad that slides out from behind the touchscreen, fitted on the purple hued chassis of this gadget.

The handset builds up on the success of the various Pantech messaging devices released in the past. It has been pre-loaded with applications such as AT&T Social Net, Facebook and Twitter amongst others for instant one-touch access to these social networks. Additionally, the phone should let users type faster with the physical keyboard and quickly navigate through it on the 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen that cuts back on the glaring effect for relatively clear visuals. A 2MP camera capable of recording videos, graces its rear panel.

“Swift is a dynamic addition to AT&T and Pantech’s Quick Messaging Phone lineup. Swift gives our consumers all the great advanced features they need, while emphasizing style, functionality and affordability,” stated Wyatt Whaley, Vice President of Product Marketing at Pantech Wireless.

The curvaceous design makes for a firm grip over the phone that facilitates sending messages or updating statuses, while on the move. Complete with personalization options in the form of three customizable homescreens, it embeds an expansion slot for a microSD card of up to 32GB capacity. This handset runs the Brew mobile platform and draws power from a 1000mAh battery that claims to cough up the juice for talk time of close to 3 hours.

The AT&T Pantech Swift price stands at $69.99 after $50 mail-in rebate, along with a two-year contract and affordable rate plans. It is now available through the network provider’s official website.
