AT&T kicks off 2013 with one of Pantech’s most impressive smartphones to date – the Pantech Discover. The Discover, a 4G LTE smartphone, boasts a 4.8-inch HD 1280 x 720 display, 12.6 MP camera, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 16 GB on-board memory and a 2100 mAh battery. The Discover’s dual 3D surround sound speakers provide a rich audio experience for listening to music and watching movies.
Packed with high tech features for an affordable price, the Discover provides tremendous value, fast data speeds and high performance to entertainment seekers and business professionals alike.
“‘The Pantech Discover combines a feature-packed experience – complete with a 12.6-megapixel camera and HD display – with a cost-effective price point, giving AT&T customers yet another strong option in our 4G LTE portfolio,’ said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president- Devices, AT&T. “AT&T is dedicated to educating customers about the dangers of texting while driving and providing real solutions to help prevent the behavior. With DriveMode pre-loaded on the Discover, we hope that users will be less likely to text and drive.”
This will be the first AT&T smartphone pre-loaded with the AT&T DriveMode application. The DriveMode app can be set up automatically to send a customizable reply to messages once the vehicle is moving at least 25 mph. The auto-reply is similar to an “out-of-office alert” that responds to texts, emails, and voice calls to let people know you’re driving and unable to respond.
Pantech’s provides exclusive Easy Experience and Standard Experience modes, which are also available on the Discover. The Easy Experience mode prioritizes customers’ apps on the home screen in an easy-to-read format. Customers can easily switch to the Standard Experience, a classic Android format, to access Discover’s wide range of features in a highly customizable interface. Business users get to benefit from full VPN and EAS support, plus device encryption for secure access to corporate email and intranets.
