Pantech intros bone-conducting A1407PT handset

While bone conduction has been fairly quick to catch on in headsets, the slightly unnerving technology has so far been conspicuously absent from the cellphones themselves, save for the odd rumor. Pantech looks set to change that, however, with its newly-announced bone-rattling A1407PT handset now headed straight for KDDI. Apart from that one unique feature, however, the phone looks to be a pretty basic clamshell, including a 2.4-inch QVGA display on the inside and a 96 x 64 display on the flip, along with a 1.3 megapixel camera, 20MB of internal memory, and the ever-present microSD slot for expansion. No word on what it'll cost, but those in Japan will be able to get their hands on one sometime in November.
