The Impact has a unique design that's quite unlike the Pantech Reveal. On the exterior you'll see a touch keypad with vibrating feedback and a small display that lets you access a limited number of menu options. Inside is a full QWERTY keypad and a landscape display. The keyboard features plenty of shortcut options, though the keys are a tad cramped. We'll have to see whether the design works for long-term use. In our brief tour at CTIA it seemed fine, but the plastic shell felt a tad fragile.
Features on the world phone include a 2-megapixel camera, messaging and e-mail, a personal organizer, a music player, a speakerphone, voice dialing, USB mass storage, and a full HTML browser. The 3G support also brings access to AT&T's Cellular Video service.
The Impact is available in pink or blue for $99.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. The full price with no contract is $249.99. We'll have a review in the next week.
