Excerpt: The Pantech Slate is a great phone for the crazy texting teenager. The full QWERTY keyboard is very easily used and is great for messaging for any sort. Some games are available however the pricing can be quite high. Email can also be check and the internet is acceable. However, a data package must be purchased or ou can just pay as you go, which can get very, very expensive. Of course, it can call and it has exceptional call quality.
Excerpt: The Pantech Slate was my first choice for phones when my plan (through AT&T) was being renewed. I love the fact that it has a full QWERTY keyboard which is great for the amount of texting I do daily. It also has a great amount of memory space in the inbox so there isn't constant emptying of the inbox, and can also hold a decent amount of pictures. Memory starts to run low when you add lots of ringtones or full length songs.
Summary: this product that i chose to buy was a gift for my sister on her birthday. she was using my old blackberry but didn't like it, she like ease of the pantech slate better, i really don't have any dislikes about the phone.
Summary: My wife doesn't need a robust smartphone but she needs a good texting phone to keep up with our daughter. This fits the bill perfectly. My wife complains that she could not see a photo message, not sure if its the phone's limitation or the wife.
Summary: A pretty good phone for messaging and calling. Good call quality and reception, and the QWERTY keypad is well designed and easy to use. Decent camera. Very cool looks, and it's lightweight and thin. Doesn't require a data package to use, and keeps it's charge for a long time. However, there are some annoying features, such as a 3 button series to unlock the phone, and an immovable "AT&T" in the center of the screen, which always blocks your wallpaper.
Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted a qwerty keyboard for texting but did not want a smart phone or pda. This phone serves that purpose perfectly. The QWERTY keyboard buttons are easy to push without hitting the wrong key. An excellent design.
