BGR obtained leaked information about Pantech’s upcoming tablet that will land on AT&T, and it will be announced at Consumer Electronics Show 2012. The Pantech Element is very unique, because it is ‘waterproof for life.’ At least that is what AT&T’s documents said. Besides the fact it is waterproof, specifications for the Element include a 1.5GHz processor, an 8-inch touchscreen display, Android 3.2 (Honeycomb), 5-megapixel rear-camera with 1080p HD capture, 2-megapixel front-camera, advanced “Piezo Motor” haptic feedback, 4G LTE, and 16GB of internal storage.

Sadly, it does not seem like the Element can be submerged in water, rather it can just receive a small splash. BGR said the Pantech Element should land on AT&T Jan. 8 for $299 on two-year contract and $449 off contract.
