Pantech Impact at AT&T

Pantch-ImpactPantech Wireless, Inc., – the U.S.-based subsidiary of Pantech Group, one of Korea’s largest mobile phone manufacturers – will bring “Impact” to AT&T customers. The second Pantech handset to hit shelves this holiday season debuts in two cool colors – bright blue and soft pink – and delivers a brand new form factor to AT&T’s line of quick messaging phones. Impact features a high-gloss faceplate with a haptic response touchpad, two screens and a full hidden keyboard, along with a host of the latest social and multimedia options, to make managing your mobile life startlingly fun.

Responds to the Touch

In a world where most phones look identical and feel the same, Impact puts an end to predictability by providing users an altogether new experience. From the outside, Impact’s shiny blackout exterior is surrounded by textured blue or pink detailing. Each time the touchpad below the screen is pressed it springs to action, reacting to finger taps with a soft, tactile buzz. Impact lets users play and control music, make a call, or send texts without ever having to open the phone.

Flip out

A sideways flip open of Impact reveals a full QWERTY keyboard for typing longer messages, and a range of shortcut keys enabling one-touch access to IM, text, email, and jumping between apps. Users will also find a second full-color display screen, perfect for watching video clips, viewing friends’ profiles, or flipping through pictures. And on either side of the screen sit speakers, making listening to music, chatting on speakerphone, or hearing GPS directions easy and loud. Whether browsing the Web, updating your status with pictures and videos, or playing games, Impact keeps users close to their social life at every turn.
