Pantech will be releasing the worlds first 1.5 GHZ dual core phone for the masses. It is definitely something that a lot of people will be interested in and will qualify as perhaps the most powerful smart phone on the market. The company also announced that they have plans for an upcoming tablet in the works as well, which would compliment the release of the phone quite well, given that the power is more suited for a larger device.
The company is based in Korea. At this point they do not have a large smart device presence in the Western countries, but they have been able to put together a good line of Android devices like Unlocked Motorola Atrix, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, etc..that compliment other devices well. It looks as though their phone will have the Qualcomm MSM8660 Snapdragon chip, which has been highly touted when used with other devices. It will also come with a gigabyte of RAM and the Adreno 220 GPU.
The display of the device will be 800 x 480 WVGA resolutions along with an eight mega pixel camera and a 1650 MAh battery. The phone only weighs 120 grams which is surprising given all that the phone comes with. Also, Pantech has announced that they will be getting into the tablet industry when they release a companion tablet for their high powered device.
The company did not announce when they would be releasing the devices or provide any insight into when consumers can expect to find them on the shelves. If they are official confirming the device it will probably not be all that long of a wait, of course they could just be attempting to build anticipation for the highly powered device. When it is released, it will easily be the most high powered phone on the market, hopefully the price will be reasonable.
