>> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate editor for cnet.com and this is the Pantech Breeze from AT&T. And it's called the "Breeze" because it's meant to be a breeze to use. It is one of the first phones from AT&T that designs specifically for senior citizens or the disabled. As you can see, it is very slim, very sleek, very trimmed phone right here. On the front, you do get an external display, very simple external display for photo caller ID and date and time information. Open it up and you do get a very bright and vibrant 252-color 2.2-inch wide display right here. Underneath the display, you do get three "quick-call" keys and these are meant for like emergency contacts, speed-dial keys. Underneath that, you do get the typical navigation array and the alphanumeric keypad. We definitely like the keypad. It's very spacious; the numbers are nice and big. You can also get audible keystrokes sounds when you hit a button. So, it's very easily use and the many interfaces were easy to use as well. Even though the Pantech Breeze is meant to be an entry-level phone, it's has quite a number of features. It has multimedia messaging on here. It has a Web browser. It has also a VGA camera with video recording capabilities. So, even though it's meant to be an entry-level phone for seniors or those with disabilities, it's actually a very full-functioning phone that almost anyone can appreciate. The Pantech Breeze is available for around 75 dollars of a two-year contract and a million rebate. My name is Nicole Lee. This has been the Pantech Breeze.

Pantech Breeze - white (AT&T) Review
The good: The Pantech Breeze is an attractively slim flip phone with a large keypad, a display with big fonts, and a really easy-to-use interface. It also has a VGA camera and three quick-call keys for emergency purposes.
The bad: The Pantech Breeze's quick-call keys are smooth to the surface of the phone, and there's no self-portrait mirror.
The bottom line: The Pantech Breeze is definitely ideal for senior citizens and those with disabilities, but it's also an all-around great phone for anyone who wants a decent entry-level handset.
