A new simple messaging phone from AT&T will be available next week that was designed by little-known company Pantech. The full Qwerty phone will be available at an after-contract price of under $10.
The Link measures just 10 millimeters thick, is programmed with social networking integration with AT&T Social Net, and has the basic data services from the service provider like 3G connectivity, e-mail, and video capturing/sending.
Pantech is a relatively new company based out of South Korea and has a flagship US partner in AT&T. The company specializes in low-cost phones, which provides the baseline for all mobile carriers.
"We really enjoy working with AT&T customers to make sure that all of our handsets meet their ever-expanding needs," said Pantech CMO Dave Ronis.
The Link will be available on Sunday, April 18, and will cost $9.99 after an unspecified rebate amount and a two-year contract subsidy. A plan of at least $20 a month is required.
