Back in 2003 after I graduated from college, Pantech was a small company in South Korea that developed smartphones for the Korean market. I actually had a job offer from there but refused because their headquarters is located far away from Seoul city since I am a city-slicker.
Anyways, Pantech has been slowly growing over the years it seems they’ve just launched the new Pantech Vega No. 5 with dual-core 1.5Ghz processor. This is exciting as it means there’s going to be slew of other smartphones with a similar processor coming out later this year.
Also, Koreans call this odd-sized smartphone a “tabletphone”, I think that makes sense.
