Pantech parades around seven new concept phones

Ryan Block, @ryan

The concept phone beat always kind of amuses us, probably since a lot of the stuff we see people coming up with as their wildest phone fantasies aren't too far off from reality for some Asian phone manufacturers. Thus, Panetch concept phones may seem a little recursive for a company whose handsets are often so advanced, but here's what they got: Cancro, a 5G iPod like DMB handset; Echo, a digital camera like phone; Libro, a Bluetooth tilt & slider with DMB; Muse (right), a "sporty" spinner; My Music, a, um, musicphone; Phone Theater, a slider with a tube speaker dock; and our favorite, the Transformer (upper left), a wide LCD TV / gamephone with a kickstand.
