Pantech is releasing a new, full-featured Android smartphone for only $50
The new smartphone is the Pantech Discover, and it is a 4G phone for only $49.99 with a two-year contract through AT&T.
The Pantech Discover features 4.8-inch HD display with 1280x720 resolution, a 12.6 MP camera, 1080p HD video recording and playback, dual 3D surround sound speakers, near-field communication (NFC), 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 16 GB on-board memory and Easy Experience/Standard Experience modes depending on the user.
It also offers AT&T's new DriveMode app, which stops drivers from using their device while driving. When the car accelerates beyond 25 MPH, the DriveMode app automatically replies to text messages with a response that lets them know you're driving. All calls are forwarded to voicemail, with the exception of those specified in your "allow" list.
"The Pantech Discover combines a feature-packed experience - complete with a 12.6-megapixel camera and HD display - with a cost-effective price point, giving AT&T customers yet another strong option in our 4G LTE portfolio," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president- Devices, AT&T. "AT&T is dedicated to educating customers about the dangers of texting while driving and providing real solutions to help prevent the behavior. With DriveMode pre-loaded on the Discover, we hope that users will be less likely to text and drive."
upped its sales target
to 26 million smartphones for all of 2012. This is an increase of one million from previous estimates. AT&T notes that it sold 6.4 million smartphones in the first two months of Q4 2012.
The Pantech Discover will be available January 11.

I know everyone rags on AT&T, but are they really THAT bad?
I know people that have issues with Verizon.
Really doesn't matter who you have, there is someone to complain about them. Here in the Northeast where I am currently, AT&T coverage could be better, but out in CA and other areas that I have been to Verizon coverage could be better.
