AT&T complemented the release of the Matrix at the end of 2008 with three other text-friendly cell phones: the AT&T Quickfire, Pantech Slate C530 and Samsung A767 Propel.
Along with its dual-sliding uniqueness, the perk of being a 3G world phone with high-speed data access and an impressive battery, the Matrix’s top sell is as a quick-messaging phone especially for text messaging-heavy users.
While the Matrix starts out at the not-so-affordable price of $229.99 from AT&T on no-commitment pricing, adding a two-year service contract knocks the price down to $79.99.
You can limbo even lower with a $50 mail-in AT&T rebate card down to $29.99.
The Pantech Matrix packs a healthy battery that’s rated at up to 5 hours of talk time and up to 16 days of standby time.
The Matrix measures in at 4.02 inches by 1.97 of an inch by 0.78 of an inch. The handset weighs a heavy 4.66 ounces.

Differentiation in the Marketplace
This handset’s prime differentiation is its dual-sliding, double-keypad design along with a longer-lasting battery and ability to be a 3G phone for a price that doesn’t break the bank.
