I don’t know about you, but if I’m looking to market a high-end cell phone, Argentina isn’t the first country that I would think about targeting (but what do I know, I’m just a lowly tech blogger). Pantech is marching on over to Argentina with their latest offering, the PG-6100 multimedia phone and, well, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what part of the phone they’re trying to emphasize.
Strangely, the camera that features quite prominently on the front of the handset only boasts two megapixels to go with its “smooth 4x digital zoom.” Other key features include a 1.9-inch 260k color TFT main display, a 260k color OLED “sub-display”, Bluetooth, a speakerphone, FM radio, polyphonic ringtones, and 256MB of internal memory.
By introducing a phone with slightly improved specs, Pantech hopes to bump their market share in Argentina from the current 6% to a more formidable 10% by the end of next year. Pantech is currently the sixth best-selling brand in the Latin American nation.
