Verizon and Pantech Introduce the Jest


TestFreaks Data

Yeah, here’s another of those phones where I’ve just got to ask who comes up with the names for these phones?! The Jest?!  Looking in the dictionary we find four different definitions basically for Jest: 1. A playful or amusing act; a prank. 2. A frolicsome or frivolous mood. 3. An object of ridicule; a laughingstock. 4. A witty remark. Well, I’m thinking that Pantech and Verizon are hoping it’s not going to be number 3… Anyway, I like Pantech phones, they’re usually basic but well made ones, and I’ve never seen one for anyone but AT&T actually, so trying one on Verizon should be a treat! The Jest is basically a social type phone with stuff for Facebook, MySpace and Twitter in there and of course the keyboard makes life easier. It’s got a 2MP camera and a 2.5” TFT screen. Price will be $69.99 after $50 mail-in rebate and 2yr agreement of course.
