Pantech, the number two mobile phone manufacturer in South Korea, announced the launch of the IM-U140 handset, a satellite digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) handset that provides users with a genuinely unique mobile phone experience via its innovative display screen.

The LCD display is designed to pop up automatically at a 30 degree angle adding significantly to users’ enjoyment of movies and TV programs. The 2.6-inch QVGA LCD is the largest display featured on a DMB handset in Korea, further augmenting the portable TV viewing experience.

M.S. Yoon, Executive Vice President, Domestic Marketing, Pantech Group, said: “We have designed the touch screen on the IM-U140 model so that it vibrates when touched, enhancing the overall unique feel of the phone.

The IM-U140 features four channel stereo speakers, enabling users to enjoy a richer quality of sound when they watch the mobile TV or play mobile games. In addition, the handset features a 3 megapixel camera with useful modes such as image stabilization, auto focus and white balance, providing users with higher picture quality.

The new model also has PictBridge functionality, which enables the transmission of photos directly from the handset to printers. Other user-friendly features include an MP3 player and electronic dictionary.

The IM-U140 handset will become available in Korea this month and will be marketed under Pantech’s SKY brand.
