AT&T is now reportedly offering Pantech’s first US tablet, called Element. This portable device runs on AT&T’s 4G LTE mobile broadband network and its durable construction is supposedly capable of withstanding “life’s unexpected mishaps”.

The water and splash proof Element is equipped with an 8-inch capacitive multi-touch HD display that has a maximum supported resolution of 1024-by-768 pixels. Furthermore, the tablet packs a Dual-Core Snapdragon APQ8060 central processing unit with a clock frequency of 1.5GHz.

Pantech’s new slate also offers 16GB of storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB by utilizing the integrated microSD slot. In addition, users can stay connected thanks to the LTE, Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR modules.

Other features include a micro-USB charging port, micro-HDMI output, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a 6400mAh Lithium-ion battery that is reportedly good for 12 hours on a single charge. The Element also comes with two built-in cameras – one on the back (5MP) and a front-facing 2MP web camera for video conferencing.

Pantech’s latest “lightweight” tablet will supposedly ship with an Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system (no word on an ICS update).
