The Pantech Link features a 600 entry phone book in which each user can be assigned up to six numbers, three e-mail addresses, a messenger user name, three street addresses, a company name, web address, birth date, anniversary and a short note. Each contact can also be assigned to a caller group and a ringtone for caller ID purposes. Additional basic features of the Pantech Link include a world clock, calculator, timer, stopwatch, unit converter, notepad and a voice recorder.
More advanced features include a voice command feature, stereo Bluetooth, instant messaging applications including Yahoo, Windows Live and AIM support, GPS support in conjunction with AT&T Navigator and mobile e-mail support. Mobile e-mail support allows users access to several e-mail providers including AOL, Windows Live and Yahoo. Users may also enter their own POP/IMAP server settings for additional e-mail capabilities. The Pantech Link also features an HTML web browser based on Opera. Unfortunately, due to the Link’s small screen size users will experience a lot of scrolling in order to see information on various webpages.
AT&T has included several additional services to the Pantech Link. These services include AT&T’s Cloud which allows users to backup all their phone contacts to AT&T’s online Address Book. Users can also import contacts and send messages from AT&T’s Cloud service. The smartphone also includes AT&T’s Online Locker which enables users to store both photos and videos on AT&T’s servers. Each online account is capable of storing up to 250MB. File transfers come at a low cost of $0.35.
The Pantech Link supports AT&T’s 3G network and an array of broadband services including Mobile Video and Mobile Music which allows users to search, purchase and download music from e-Music or Napster. The Link can also support up to 16 GB microSD cards.
The device’s 1.3 megapixel camera is capable of taking photographs in up to four different resolutions and three quality settings. The camera includes several other options like shutter and timer sounds, a self timer and white balance control. The camera is also able to record video.
