Tablets appear to be a dime a dozen now a days so a tablet has to be pretty unique in order to stand out in this market. Pantech announced earlier today their 8-inch tablet dubbed the Pantech Element, and you may be wondering what makes this one unique. Featuring an 8-inch touchscreen, and running a lightly skinned Honeycomb the device sure sounds like an ordinary device. Unlike many other tablets this device is waterproof, meaning if you want to use it in the rain, or by the pool you don’t have to fear the device getting wet and being ruined.
