Pantech U4000 kicks off Orange deal

Chris Ziegler

Could Pantech be the next Samsung or LG? It may have a way to go yet before we can start drawing those kinds of comparisons, but their latest deal to supply Orange with 3G handsets in France brings it one step closer -- particularly considering that the deal means the Korean company is now delivering handsets to all three of France's major carriers. The first product to come out of the agreement will be the U4000, a black slider with a 220 x 176 display, 1.3 megapixel primary and VGA secondary cams, Bluetooth, and 30MB of user-accessible storage plus microSD expansion. All told, the specs make the U4000 a fairly unremarkable handset, but seeing how this is a multi-phone deal, we'll just have to stay tuned to see what else in store for our friends on Orange.
