Touch technology brings new experience to Pantech Impact messaging phone users
In a world where most phones look identical and feel the same, Pantech Impact puts an end to predictability by providing users an altogether new experience. From the outside, Impact’s shiny blackout exterior is surrounded by textured blue or pink detailing. Each time the touchpad below the screen is pressed it springs to action, reacting to finger taps with a soft, tactile buzz. Impact lets users play and control music, make a call, or send texts without ever having to open the phone.

A sideways flip open of Impact reveals a full QWERTY keyboard for typing longer messages, and a range of shortcut keys enabling one-touch access to IM, text, email, and jumping between apps. Users of the Pantech Impact will also find a second full-color display screen, perfect for watching video clips, viewing friends’ profiles, or flipping through pictures. And on either side of the screen sit speakers, making listening to music, chatting on speakerphone, or hearing GPS directions easy and loud. Whether browsing the Web, updating your status with pictures and videos, or playing games, Impact keeps users close to their social life at every turn.
