AT&T Adds Pantech Renue for the Eco-Conscious Texter
AT&T’s latest quick-messaging phone will help you keep in touch with friends and family and help reduce your carbon footprint.
Available now for $69.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate, the Pantech Renue features a design built from 67 percent recyclable material, and comes in packaging made from 95 percent recycled paper.
The phone has a full physical keyboard that slides under the screen. When not in use, you can navigate the handset with the 3.2-inch touchscreen. It offers up to four customizable home screens, so can add shortcuts to your favorite apps, photos and contacts for easier access. The Pantech Renue also comes with a three-megapixel camera on the back.
In addition to the Renue launch, AT&T announced that, beginning today, it will start posting eco-rating labels on all of its phones to show how a device rates based on energy efficiency, use of environmentally preferable materials, and other criteria.
