The Pantech Pocket is one of five new Android handsets AT&T announced at CTIA in San Diego. It has a rather unusual form factor--it measures 4 inches diagonally, but it has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which gives it quite a wide footprint.
The Pantech Pocket is Pantech's second Android phone for AT&T--the first was the Crossover--and it's also the first Pantech Android phone to support AT&T's 4G / HSPA+ network. It ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and utilizes Pantech's own UI due to the unusual aspect ratio. The four default buttons along the bottom row of the home screen are shortcuts to the phone dialer, messaging app, browser, and the main menu.
The Pantech Pocket has a textured surface on the back that Pantech says increases the durability of the phone. It certainly feels comfortable and easier to grip. Also on the back is the 5-megapixel camera lens.
