Pantech Laser (AT&T)

The Good The Pantech Laser is a slim and attractive slider phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, a 3-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS, and plenty of multimedia features.

The Bad The resistive touch screen is not as smooth as we would like, photo quality was disappointing, and call quality was average.

The Bottom Line The Pantech Laser's generous features and stylish good looks make it one of the better messaging phones in AT&T's lineup.

Pantech Laser (AT&T)

Just when we thought the skinny phone trend was over, Pantech introduces the Pantech Laser, which it claims is the thinnest slider messaging phone AT&T has to offer. While we doubt it will retain this title for long, we do appreciate the effort, as most slider messaging phones tend to be a bit bulky. But the Laser's svelte figure is not its only attribute; it also has a nice 3.1-inch AMOLED touch screen, a 3-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, and a music player. The Pantech Laser is available for $99.99 with a new two-year service agreement and a $50 rebate from AT&T Wireless.

Design
The Pantech Laser is indeed a very slim phone. Measuring 4.45 inches long by 2.28 inches wide by 0.39 inch thick, the Laser almost looks like the Pantech Ease on a diet. Indeed, the Laser is thinner than most candy bar phones, much less slider handsets. Aside from rounded corners, the phone has straight sides and back that are clad in a textured surface so you don't have to worry about losing hold of the phone. The Laser is also relatively lightweight at 4.59 ounces.
