Text-heavy users rejoice: AT&T just released four new phones just for you. Sporting QWERTY keyboards, these phones are designed for text-heavy users who don't need corporate e-mail access and other features you'd typically see on a smartphone. Here's a closer look at each of the new phones:
The Pantech Matrix comes in navy blue and black with green and will also be available on the 16th in red. It is $79.99 with a two-year agreement and discounts, and it features the same double-keypad design that is found on the Pantech Duo. Just slide the phone vertically, and you'll see a number pad. A horizontal slide reveals the full QWERTY keyboard. The Matrix has a 1.3MP camera, and supports instant messaging, Mobile Email, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Mobile Music, CV, AT&T Video Share calling, and more.
The Samsung Propel is a vertical slider that supports instant messaging, Mobile Email, AT&T Navigator, CV, AT&T Video Share calling, and AT&T Mobile Music. Like the Matrix, the Propel also has a 1.3MP camera and is available for $79.99 after a two-year agreement and discounts. Look for the Propel later this month in your choice of blue, green, red, or white with red.
Hyped as the world's thinnest device with a full QWERTY keypad, the Pantech Slate will retail for $49.99 after a two-year agreement and discounts. This bar-style phone has a 1.3MP camera and can handle instant messaging and Mobile Email. It also sports Bluetooth connectivity. The Slate will be available in black with royal blue later this month.
Coming in November, the AT&T Quickfire uses a horizonal sliding form factor. This phone boasts of a touch screen that can display messages in portrait or landscape mode. It also supports Napster Mobile and eMusic Mobile. This phone will cost $99.99 after a two-year agreement and discounts.

Yes, I've always thought to myself: How could I get all the same conveniences of e-mail, but pay for every message.
If there's some kind of nobel prize for devices with the weirdest demographics, combining corporate executives and teenage girls has got to be the equivalent of cold fusion.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
