First Look: Pantech Breeze III

1:58 /

The Pantech Breeze III is a well-designed and affordable entry-level handset for senior citizens, kids, and cell phone novices.

I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the Pantech Breeze III. The Breeze III is essentially a basic flip phone for A&T Wireless. On the front is a simple external display that displays the usual date, time and caller ID information. Underneath to the external display are 3 LED notifications for incoming messages and so forth. On the side here is the volume. On the other side is the micro USB port and on the back is the 1.3 megapixel camera. Flip the phone up and then you will find a very colorful display. Underneath the display, you get a 3 quick keys that can be used for speed dial or shortcut keys. You get the usual navigation array that includes shortcuts to the camera function as well as voice command. The overall keypad as you can see here is quite spacious. Its key is quite large and a little bit raised above the surface so it's easy to text and dial by feel. The Breeze III has 2 different phone menu modes. One is the Breeze or easy mode and the other is advanced mode for savvier users. The Breeze mode as you can see here is pretty simple. All of the menu options are displayed in a list style form factor. The advanced mode opens up the phone's full list of functions as well as displaying things in a more grit-like fashion. In addition to the Breeze III from the Breeze II is that it also has a new pill reminder application. The Breeze III is preparing for senior citizen's kids or just cellphone novices in general. The Pantech Breeze III is quite affordable at only around $40 and a 2-year service agreement with AT&T. I'm Nicole Lee, this has been the first look at the Pantech Breeze III.
