Hands on: Pantech C610 for AT&T

Pantech and AT&T just announced the C610 a few hours ago, and we’ve already splayed one out for the world to see. For only setting you back $49 bucks with contract (or $0, in some markets), the handset is surprisingly easily on the eyes. It’s obviously not going to be a bar-setter, but with 3G, assisted GPS, AT&T Video Share, microSD, Bluetooth, and a 1.3 megapixel shooter, it’s got the basics covered. We’ve only just unboxed it, so we don’t have much to say about it just yet – that said, I’ve never been a huge fan of flush keypads, so I’m already a bit wary.
