Pantech has announced that it is about to release a new mobile phone based upon the Android operating system. Called the Vega X, the new phone is notable because it will feature a new class of adapted mobile memory called DDR2, usually found in PCs - but a first for any mobile phone (the company is no stranger to 'firsts', remember the 3D interface?) and one that will speed up the operations of the handset by a factor of 1.5, according to the Akihabaranews website
The Pantech Vice President, Lee Eung-joon, was so impressed with his company's new product, he could not help but be bullish in his priase for the Vega X, “When surfing the Internet, searching the Web running applications or 3D games, its speed is so fast that it could threaten the existence of personal computers."
The Vega X itself will run on Android 2.2 Froyo and will be powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. Arriving with a 4in screen of WVGA resolution, the phone will include a built in camera of 5-megapixels.
