Pantech is one of the leading mobile phone companies in S.Korea, and they always announce some amazing devices but mostly in S.Korea. They are also offering some of their devices in the States via AT&T and Verizon, but all of them are just mid-range devices, and we are still waiting for Pantech to announce their superphones in USA, like the new Pantech Vega Racer. It’s the first device to come with a 1.5 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm MSM8600, 1GB RAM and a blazing fast Adreno GPU. Unfortunately, the device will be available only on SK Telecom later this month. It comes with a 4.3-Inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 800×480 and the phone is rocking on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. There is an 8 MP camera on the back side and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. It’s only 9 mm thin, features 1650 mAh battery and weighs 120 grams. Pantech is also planning to launch a tablet later this year, so let’s see if the tablet is powerful enough to beat XOOM and other tablets.
HTC’s first attempt at tackling the tablet market, the HTC Flyer has landed in the T3 offices and so we have compiled a gallery of hands-on images with the 7-inch device.
Available to buy now priced £599.99 as a standalone device the HTC Flyer, first unveiled at Mobile World Congress back in February, comes equipped with Google’s Android 2.4 Gingerbread mobile operating system with an upgrade to the tablet centric 3.0 Honeycomb reportedly already in the works.
Touting a 7-inch display with a 1024 x 600p resolution the Flyer’s spec sheet is plumped by the inclusion of a 1.5GHz single core processor 1GB of RAM and HTC’s hugely popular Sense UI skin running over Google’s Android OS.
With full Flash 10 and HTML 5 compatibility, the HTC Flyer comes boxed with a HTC Magic Pen stylus for note taking and improved user interaction with a 5-megapixel rear mounted camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities joins by a 1.3-megapixel forward-facing snapper.
