Pantech U170 Style Phone

Pantech today unveiled its IM-U170 clamshell media phone. Evoking both the design influences of the iPod and RAZR, the U170 is clothed in a white outer shell but has a brushed-metal inside that includes an exotic touch-sensitive keypad in place of traditional buttons. 3G wireless is essential to the design, says Pantech: support for HSDPA, EVDO, and Korea's native WiBro speed the handset's Internet access and make use of the phone's forward-facing VGA camera for video conferencing and self-portraits. The phone also toggles quickly between MP3 playback and calling duties through a rocker switch. The U170 is available today through the Korean carrier SKY.
