Equipped with a 12-megapixel camera, a 4.8-inch HD display, and a dual-core processor, AT&T's Pantech Discover costs only $49.99.

Hi, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET. Here in Las Vegas at CES 2013 with the Pantech Discover from AT&T. Now, the Discover is a 4G LTE device with NFC capabilities and it runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Though there are plans for an upgrade to Jellybean. There-- it has a 4.8-inch HD display that has a 1280 by 720 pixel resolution. On the back there's a 12.6 megapixel camera that's capable of shooting 1080p HD video. Parring the device is a 1.5 GHZ dual core CPU. It also features 1 gig of RAM and a 2.1 Ah battery, which roughly translates to 10 hours of talk time. Now, one of the features of this device is the drive mode app, which is part of AT&T's It Can Wait Campaign. It all stands when you're in a car and driving more than 25 miles an hour. And if you get a call, it will send back a reply message saying that you can't take the car right now and that you'll call them later. The handset also features this dual 3D surround sound speakers, which enhances your audio experience when you're watching movies or listening to music. If you're interested, the Pantech Discover will be available starting January 11th for $49.99. Again, I'm Lynn for CNET here at CES 2013.
