To magnetize all design loving consumers Korea’s No-3 handset manufacturer Pantech will soon release its slimmest slide type phone in the local market.

The phone is equipped with 1.3-megapixel built-in camera, MP3 player, CD-quality audio, data via in-car terminals or handheld devices and Digital Media Broadcasting(DMB) that enables user to enjoy crystal-clear videos.
However, the price of this super-slim phone is not yet announced but it will soon hit the local market in April.
