First Look: Pantech C150

1:31 /

The Pantech C150 is a solid, basic camera phone with impressive call quality and an unbeatable price.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Pentax Z150 for AT&T. It is a fairly basic camera phone for AT&T. As you can see it's very simple, minimalistic[SP?] Zen like design, we actually really like it, very simple controls. It is a simple candy bar with an okay looking screen for what it is, you usually get a pretty good keypad, and all the keys have sort of bumps and ridges to make it really easy to dial by feel. And you get a functional joystick toggle in the middle, for easy navigation as well. On the side here you get a camera button, on the other side is a volume rocker. On the back is a VGA camera lens right here. So there aren't that many features with this phone but it is pretty basic, so that's to be expected. I mean you do get basic e-mail, instant messaging for Yahoo, AOL and Windows messenger; you also get access to a fairly simple wireless Web browser. But the best thing about this phone as far as we are concerned is that it's free, with a two-year contract. So for a pretty attractive, basic phone that makes calls and take's simple pictures you can't get much better than free with the Pentax Z150. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Pentax Z150 for AT&T.
