Pantech is not known for its Android tablets, that’s for sure, but the Korean company has now reached the news by preparing a LTE tablet for launch on AT&T. The info comes from the FCC, that has proof regarding this new product, with the model number P4100.
The device was originally spotted in the NenaMark benchmark tests back in September and now it’s back, packing a 7 inch display with 1024 x 720 pixel resolution, a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm processor and Android 3.2 as the OS. The slate was already approved by the FCC as far as LTE bands 4 and 13 are concerned, plus WCDMA bands II and IV, meaning that it will reach AT&T in the US. The carrier didn’t announce a pricing or any release date for the product, but the FCC approval is certainly a good sign.
Pantech isn’t a brand with a great fan base or a big portofolio in the USA, so it’s good to see them expanding, particularly if they offer reasonable price tags. Keep in mind that this is still an important OEM for many AT&T phones, that in the end get rebrand, but they’re still Pantech material at heart.
