Available on AT&T's 4G HSDPA+ network, the Android 2.3-powered Pocket features a 4-inch widescreen touch display with a unique 800 x 600-pixel resolution and 5-megapixel camera. 

Frequent travelers will appreciate that the Pocket can get voice access in more than 190 countries and data coverage in 130 countries. Pantech and AT&T also loaded up the device with a slew of multimedia apps, including MobiTV integration, AT&T's U-Verse Live TV, and Amazon's Kindle app. Other features include social media connectivity via AT&T's Social Net app, music and video sharing features, AT&T's Address book, a code scanner, and Yellow Page's YPMobile app.
