Review: Pantech Impact
Did you see the Best Buy TV ads during the Christmas holiday with the Christmas carolers suggesting the guy buy his girlfriend a cell phone as a holiday gift? When my boyfriend saw that commercial he said “Why would you buy your girlfriend a cell phone for Christmas?” I had to disagree. I would totally appreciate a brand new cell phone that’s cute and filled with nice features, like the Pantech Impact. The Impact is part of AT&T’s line of quick messaging phones. The phone I reviewed was a pretty soft pink, but it’s also available in blue. It flips open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard with a 2.6” color screen. The front has a touch-screen with a numeric keypad with a small black and white screen. The phone is also fairly light and small, weighing in at 4.5 ounces and measuring 4.19" x 2.04" x 0.7".
The Pantech Impact is available from AT&T for $249.99. With a 2-year contract, its $99.99 with a $50.00 mail-in rebate, bringing the cost to $49.99 (requires a minimum $20 messaging and/or data service).
So there you have it. To our Cutegeek male readers checking out this site for ideas on the right gadget to get your girl…It’s ok to buy her a cell phone for Valentine’s Day. But, then again, that’s coming from me…I’m a gadget freak and I also asked for a Swiffer WetJet for Christmas (which I didn’t get, by the way). So if you buy her a cell phone for Valentine’s Day, maybe you should throw in some flowers…ok and jewelry.
