AT&T recently announced the new Pantech Pursuit, a QWERTY feature phone with a touchscreen. The Pantech Pursuit comes equipped with a 2 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, 3G connectivity, and aGPS support for AT&T Navigator's voice-guided turn-by-turn directions. It also comes with Facebook and MySpace applications pre-installed.

The Pursuit has a unique "shake" feature which I was able to activate by opening up the phone's settings menu. You can set the device to automatically launch a music player, snooze your alarm, clear the calculator, or set the phone to vibrate mode, all by shaking the device after tapping one of your predefined "shake" buttons.

The keyboard feels a bit cramped for my tastes so far, but the device feels sturdy and is its compact size makes it barely noticeable in my pockets. I'll be using the device for a bit and will share more of my thoughts in an upcoming hands-on video.

The Pantech Pursuit will launch on June 6th for $49.99 with a 2-year AT&T contract.
