Pantech breEZe II Clamshell Now Available at AT&T

Its hard to write about a simple clamshell style phone, but that said, I do realize they have their place in the market. After all not everyone wants an expensive smartphone, or the extra expense in the form of a required data plan. Given that, they should be fair game to cover once in a while, especially when they come sporting a super cool name as in the case of the Pantech breEZe II. And yes, that is the official spelling.

Moving past the name though, and getting to the important part — the price. In the case of the Pantech breEZe II you will be able to pick one up for just $19.99 on contract. Though it is worth mentioning that the price comes after a $50 mail in rebate and along with a two year agreement. In other words, expect to pay $69.99 in the store and get a few forms to fill out so you can get your $50 rebate in the mail. Additionally, those looking to go contract free will be able to shell out $169.99.
As for the specs, they are simple. But that is kind of what you would expect in a clamshell style feature phone. Isn’t it? Anyway, you can expect to find a QVGA internal display, 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD card slot, an external display and three separate external LED notifiers which will alert the user of missed calls, new messages and a low battery.
Additionally, the breEZe II also has three one-touch call keys on the inside, which are ever so nicely labeled as 1, 2 and 3 and what was described as “large font and keypad.” As a bonus, the breEZe II comes with 3G support for faster “Internet browsing and navigation functions. Though I am not sure how much Internet browsing you will be doing on the smaller sized display.
Finally, in a move that rings true to the mentioned target audience that is described as being “users of all ages” you have a customizable menu that offers a simple “breEZe mode” or “advanced mode.” Of course, in reality the advanced mode is just giving full access to all of the features including a music player, games and social networking.
In the end though, if you are on the AT&T network, or willing to switch and are looking for a simple no nonsense clamshell phone then the Pantech breEZe II may be just what you are looking for.
