- PG-3600V handset offers hip design & user-friendly control with touch wheel sensor
- New GSM model features video editing function, a world first in GSM technology
SEOUL, May 15, 2006: Pantech Group, the number two mobile phone company in South Korea, today announced the launch in Hong Kong of its PG-3600V handset. Boasting a sleek and trendy look, the new slider phone has a revolutionary touch wheel sensor, as well as a unique video editing application, and is aimed at young, trend-setting consumers.
The touch wheel sensor enables easy navigation by allowing users to sweep the wheel key with their fingers. Targeted at the younger, ‘digital generation’, the touch wheel offers an easy-to-use function for tracking songs, a zoom function for capturing images or tracking recorded movies, and moving menu bars.
S. Jay Yim, Vice President, Overseas Marketing, Pantech, said: “The PG-3600V not only offers a unique design with its finely honed, attractive finish, but it also highlights our efforts to offer the latest, most user-friendly applications to young tech-savvy users. We feel the PG-3600V actively supports the desire prevalent amongst many people to stand apart from the crowd”.
The PG-3600V has already been noted for its eye-catching design and diverse applications. It received wide acclaim among both enthusiasts and industry observers at the CeBIT trade show in Germany in March.
Significantly, the video editing function incorporated in the PG-3600V is a world first, in terms of being installed on a GSM handset. The phone also features a 1.3 mega pixel camera.
Users can access a range of music files through the music player and enjoy stereo music, using Bluetooth technology. In addition, the handset, which is also being introduced in Taiwan this week, has an internal 512 Mb memory capacity and an external card slot for more capacity.
The mobile phone market in Hong Kong, where Pantech began to sell handsets under its own brand in 2004, is expected to grow to around 2.5 million users this year. Pantech aims to boost its market share by supplying increasing quantities of its groundbreaking products and to position Pantech as the premium handset brand in Hong Kong over the coming years.
