|Pantech are demonstrating their new Pantech PG-2800 'finger-writing recognition phone' at the SVIAZ Expo Comm trade fair in Russia this week. The PG-2800 apparently recognizes and processes the user’s writing of text messages. "Consumers can either push individual keys or write letters with their fingers on the keypad when looking up words in the electronic dictionary or sending text messages," says the press release.|
|Apparently this new form of text input makes it easier to enter Chinese and Russian characters, so presumably standard keyboard-style buttons are more than adequate for English. |
Pantech will also be showing off some 31 other mobile phones at the trade fair, and will be releasing 15 other models in Russai this year to further consolidate their strength in that market.
The Pantech PG-2800's specification is as follows:
The Pantech PG-2800 isn't as fully loaded as some other Pantech phones, but it'd be intersting to see how well the PG-2800's 'finger writing recognition' works.
