Remember VK Mobile? No? We can't say we blame you, so allow us to jog your memory: these were the guys that made Helio's curious Kickflip back in the day, and for a while, the company was seen as The Next Big Thing to come out of the South Korean cellphone industry before its financial collapse a c

So maybe South Korea's VK Mobile isn't doing so bad after all. Despite recent financial woes, VK handsets continue to trickle through the FCC's halls -- certainly not at a Samsung-like pace, but hey, slow 'n steady is better than nothing.
