The Pantech Breeze III made an appearance on AT&T's online store today, and it looks to be a slight update over the Pantech Breeze II.

Improvements include more-advanced voice recognition, better sound quality thanks to a new background noise suppression technology, a pill reminder feature, and more. The overall design looks to be the same, however, with that same flip-phone design and the three speed-dial keys underneath the main display.

The Breeze series of phones has typically targeted senior citizens or those who might have trouble using more complicated cell phones. It has both an easy and advanced mode, and has big keys, a bright display, and large fonts.

A few extras include 3G speeds, a camera, a microSD card slot, and even a music player. The Breeze III is available for $49 after a two-year agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate.
