UTStarcom at CTIA 2007

UTStarcom today joined in the fray of phone announcements with three of its own. Leading the group is the pictured GSFT779. As with ZTE's D-Series, the 779 has a Fastap keyboard for quickly punching out text messages on what would otherwise be a regular number pad. Other specifications weren't mentioned specifically in the announcement but are known to include a camera and a relatively slim, 0.6-inch clamshell design. It should be available primarily Central and South America by the second half of this year.

Catch an image of the phone as well as details of the remaining two after the break.

The cellphone producer also released a pair of upgraded phones for a primarily US audience. The CDM7026 is a boost to the CDM7025 with a larger 1.8-inch screen and a larger 32MB of memory for ringtones and other data, while its more elaborate CDM7076 counterpart adds a 1-inch external display and a VGA camera for photos.

Either phone should be available soon and will likely replace their ancestors at Sprint as well as other US carriers.
