On the day that Verizon and Samsung announced a phone designed to simplify the Android experience, AT&T released its own dual-mode phone that makes Android easy to grasp. The new Pantech Flex features the same ability to toggle between a standard install of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or switch to a custom home screen with streamlined features called Easy Experience Mode.
The Pantech Flex features a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED touchscreen, a dual-core 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a microSD slot supporting up to 32 GB, and an 1,830 mAh battery. The 8 megapixel rear camera includes auto focus and is capable of filming up to 1080p HD video; a 2 megapixel front-facing camera enables video chat. The device weighs only 4.6 ounces and is only 8.1 mm (0.32in) thin.
AT&T has announced that the Pantech Flex will also support its 4G LTE network, which is now available in more than 50 markets. Beginning September 16, the Pantech Flex will go on sale for $49.99 with a two-year agreement.source: AT&T
