AT&T launches Pantech Link QWERTY phone for ten bucks

Pantech Link on AT&T

You don’t see too many Pantech phones around these parts anymore, but the Korean electronics maker is still around and it’s got a new handset for all the budget-minded texters in the audience. It has just been announced that the Pantech Link will be heading to AT&T and it’s going to be a bargain.
While its outward appearance may lead you to believe that it’s a smartphone of some kind, the Pantech Link is probably better classified as a feature or messaging phone. There’s a full QWERTY keyboard on this “quick messaging phone” and it measures under 10mm in thickness.

Based on the number of messaging phones that continue to flood the market, there are plenty of people out there who appreciate the inclusion of a hardware QWERTY keyboard, but can’t be bothered with the complexity and price of a true smartphone. Continuing with this trend is the Samsung Corby Pro.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d swear that the new Samsung Corby Pro is a smartphone. But it’s not. It’s just a phone with a touchscreen display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. What makes it “pro” is still unknown, but it could be the multitasking aspect, call it a slap in the face to Apple but a $70 phone allowing you to run multiple applications has gotta tell you something.
