First Look: AT&T's Pantech Vybe messaging phone keeps it simple

1:08 /

The Pantech Vybe for AT&T is equipped with a 3-megapixel camera, four-row QWERTY keyboard, and a reasonable on-contract price.

[MUSIC] Hello everybody, it's Lynn La for CNET. And right now, I'd like to show you the Pantech Vybe for AT&T. The Vybe is a super compact, entry level messaging phone, aimed for first time smartphone buyers, and young people. It has a 3.2 inch touch screen display. And has a simple minimalistic user interface. On the home page, you can add your commonly used apps, like you address book, messages, and even Twitter. On another, you can add your favorite webpages too, for faster access. The device has a four row slide out qwerty keyboard with comfortable, generously sized buttons. On the back there's a three megapixel camera that can record video and has a few editing effects. Powering the 3G handset is a 230 megahertz processor, and a removable 1.23 ampere-hour battery which has a reported talk time of up to six hours. There's also a micro SD card slot here that can hold up to 32 gigs of external memory. If you're interested, the phone is currently available for $30 after users sign a carrier contract. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out AT&T's Pantech Vybe. [MUSIC]
