Now, Koreans have their first Microsoft-based smartphone as Pantech brings to market the PH-S8000T. The handset is targeted at “mobile professionals” or “knowledge workers” and those who are into entertainment multimedia.
Developed in close cooperation with Microsoft and Intel, the PH-S8000T comes with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition and an Intel Mobile Processor. It features Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Mobile Version (so users can surf online) and ActiveSync (enabling users to synchronize their MS Outlook emails and schedules stored on their desktops).
The PH-S8000T also comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, VOD, MP3, photo caller ID, and Yamaha 64 poly-tone sound. It is expected to hit Korea this month, costing KRW 450,000 to 500,000 (about US $430 to $485).
“The world class functionality in the PH-S8000T means that users will be able to access a vast range of applications, which will significantly add to their professional and personal lives. Effectively, having the PH-S8000T will be just like having a computer in your hand”, Sung-Kyu Lee, Pantech President & CEO.
