AT&T has announced the Pantech Impact, a basic feature phone with a full-QWERTY keyboard and a full standard number keypad. The phone features 3G data connectivity, aGPS functionality, and a 2.0 megapixel camera.

The outside of the device provides enough control that users can play music, send texts, or make calls without opening it. Once open, users can more easily draft text messages and emails with a keyboard and a 2.6-inch LCD display.

The Impact features Bluetooth with A2DP support so users can listen to stereo music with wireless headphones. The handset has support for music stores like Napster and eMusic, mobile banking, and AT&T Navigator for turn-by-turn directions.

The Pantech Impact is currently available in blue and pink with AT&T for $99.99 with a two-year customer agreement, after a mail-in rebate.

I want this phone but i have a few questions about it. I saw in some reviews on youtube that when you turn it on the front screen blinks, but then in other reviews on youtube it doesn't blink. Idk if it is the camera that makes it look this way or what.
