Pantech reveals third Android device. (Boy, they’re getting “Sirius”)

Yucka yucka yuck. Terrible joke. Hey, I try I guess. Anywho, Pantech has taken off the wraps on their third Android device, dubbed the “Sirius” (no relation to Sirius radio). As for specs — it’s dare I say “average” affair for a high-end Android device these days — packing a 3.7″ WVGA AMOLED display, 1GHz Snapdragon muscle, 5mp shooter, 500MB of onboard storage, WiFi, and Android 2.1 (thank god all wrapped in a minute in 11.5mm shell. (Too thin?)

Salivating yet?
 
Rumors so far say either AT&T or Verizon could pick this up. My personal hunch is that if anyone stateside is going to get it, it’ll be AT&T as this Sirius here looks pretty darn close to the freshly *officially* revealed Droid Incredible on Verizon. Surely Verizon wouldn’t release a device that is nearly identical in every shape and bullet point. Not to mention, AT&T has been a regular to the Pantech crowd so a higher end Pantech running Android seems right.

My only beef is that the current fad is all-toucshcreen phones. Android’s onscreen keyboard just isn’t th at great. Really. Coming from an iPhone whose keyboard was hands down the best onscreen keyboard, Android’s leaves a lot to be desired even still. For me, sliders are where it’s at.

Would you get it?
