All these young whipper-snappers may be all caught up in multi-megapixel cameras, integrated media players, and some strange technology that involves tapping a button-less display, but that’s not what a lot of older folks are looking for when they want to buy a cell phone. By and large, these more mature customers just want something than can reliably make voice calls and that’s about it. Just make sure it’s easy to use.
AT&T may be the same place that you’ll find devices like the LG Vu and the Apple iPhone, but they’ve got some love for the retirees in the audience too in the form of the Pantech Breeze. This decidedly entry-level clamshell is catering to the older folks in the audience, but it still comes with all the basics.
Aside from voice calls, the Pantech Breeze also gets a VGA camera, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, speakerphone, Bluetooth connectivity, three dedicated speed dial buttons, and a large keypad. The Pantech Breeze is available now for $49.99 with a two-year contract.
