-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com, and this is a First Look at Pantech Pocket. The Pantech Pocket is AT&T's second android phone from Pantech. It is also Pantech's first ever 4G phone for AT&T. The Pocket has a 4-inch display in a 4:3 aspect ration, which is the reason why it's so wide. The back and on the sides here is covered in a textured material that gives it a more durable feel in the hand. Underneath the screen are the usual android shortcut keys for the menu, home, back, and search functions. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera. The Pantech Pocket ships with android 2.3 Gingerbread and is powered by a 1-gigahertz processor. A couple of the benefits of such a wide screen is that you get a wider texting surface for the virtual keyboard. You also get a wider browsing experience. The Pantech Pocket should be out before the end of the year; however, pricing has not been announced yet.
