We always like seeing carriers introduce messaging phones, since smartphones aren't everyone's cuppa. AT&T's Pantech Swift certainly looks like the kind of phone I'd expect to see in the hands of sterotypically screeching teenage girls at a Justin Bieber concert, with its purple trim and petite size.

The hardware is the Swift's strong suit. Slide over the screen and you're rewarded with a shallow tilt that improves readability.

Those with smaller hands will enjoy the compact keyboard that lets your fingers move around without having to stretch to the far reaches of the handset.

The phone looks and feels really good, but one drop to the pavement scratched the unpictured corner. Kudos for Pantech for giving the Swift a 3.5-millimeter headset jack.

We couldn't say that the 2-megapixel shooter and camcorder impressed us. You can read the Pantech Swift's pros and cons in CNET's full review.
