CES 2012: The Pantech Element tablet on AT&T

1:37 /

At CES 2012 Donald Bell takes a first look at the new Pantech Element tablet that runs on the AT&T 4G network.

Hey I'm Donald Bell for CNET.com here at CES 2012 and I'm here with the Pantech Element due out on AT&T's network this month for $299 on contract. You're getting Honeycomb 3.2 here on an 8 inch screen. So there's a lot of features here we're used to seeing on Honeycomb tablets. You're getting a 1.5 gigahertz dual core processor, front and rear cameras and you got all these ports across the bottom here. You got micro HDMI, micro USB, micro SD card slot and you're also getting a sim card slot for AT&T's 4G network, but the really big deal about this tablet is that it is waterproof. Now it's not meant to go diving with, but if you're the type who gets really paranoid at the idea of taking your tablet outside and it rained or taking with you to the Jacuzzi or whatever you gonna do that might endanger and completely ruin your tablet. This is gonna be waterproof up to 1 meter. You gotta make sure all the gaskets are here covering the ports. So hopefully you don't have your headphones already plugged in to this by the time you take it out and fall off the dock or whatever's gonna happen to... to test the waterproof capabilities here, but it's a nice rugged design for anyone who is otherwise worried that they're gonna get their tablet wet or... you know, it's gonna fall into the water and you're also getting the benefit of AT&T's 4G network. So, you're gonna be able to really take advantage of being outdoors and not worrying about your tablet being ruined. So for CNET.com, I'm Donald Bell showing off the Pantech Element on AT&T.
