Thanks to an update released today, the AT&T Pantech Discover is making the jump to Android 4.1.2. It may be two versions behind at this point, but it still gives users access to Google Now, which is perhaps the biggest advancement that Jelly Bean has to offer. Now you would be forgiven for seeing this phone's brand and rolling your eyes, but the Discover is actually a competent device. With its 4.8 720p screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and massive 12.6 megapixel camera, this has the taste - if not the smell - of a high-end device. It only costs $49 from AT&T with a two-year contract, and it comes with an "easy experience" theme that perhaps makes this a compelling handset for users who would be otherwise intimidated by a vanilla Android device. Dedicated users need not worry, though, because this skin isn't enabled by default.
