Pantech to release sub $300 waterproof Pantech Tablet next week


Some exciting news for AT&T customers that we can’t wait to get our hands on as well. We’ve just learned from BGR about the announcement of the Pantech Element, which should be released on January 8th at $299.99 with a 2 year LTE data contract, or $449.99 without a contract. As far as specs, they’re anything but standard. The Element packs an 8-inch screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Honeycomb (much to our dismay, the tablet won’t be rocking the latest and greatest Android version), and 16 GB of internal storage.The 5MP rear camera can reportedly record 1080p HD video, and the 2MP front camera brags about its ability to Skype in 720p.

The thing that seems really attractive at this price is that fact that the tablet is rated IP57 on the waterproofing scale. This is pretty good if you keep the ports covered, but don’t go scuba diving with the thing. More on this device as it comes in.

So what do you guys think? Is a waterproof tablet perfect for you because you have a toddler that likes to drool on your electronics? Let us know if you’re looking forward to this, and why, in the comments below!

    Now I know what they did with all the spare parts from the HP TouchPad Go.. the similarities in the casing and dimensions is RIDICULOUS; regardless, this little piece of work is lookin’ kinda tight.
