Pantech hooks up with Telcel for five new handsets

Chris Ziegler

Pantech might still be an up-and-comer in the US market, but if you head south of the border, you'll find that they're the fourth largest manufacturer -- this coming just two years after entering the Mexican market through an exclusive agreement with carrier Telcel -- but it looks like they're still aiming higher. The Korean company chose this week to announce not one, not two, but five new models exclusive to Telcel in the Mexican market, most interestingly the PG-6200 clamshell with fingerprint recognition and 2-megapixel cam. Also along for the ride are the PG-1310V, PG-3810, and PG-1810 clamshells, and the PG-1610 slider, all with oddly similar specs: 1.5-inch main display and VGA cams across the board.
