Pantech DM-P100 is First Disney Mobile Handset
 
 

Disney announced yesterday at the CTIA conference the launch of a mobile phone service in the United States.

The Disney phone service is targeted at kids and is giving parents control over spending and use. GPS location tracking is also supposed to be available.

Korean Pantech will provide the first handset on the Disney mobile service. The Pantech DM-P100 fold-style phone features a color display, external caller ID, a built in camera with embedded flash, speakerphone features, text and picture messaging and voice activated dialing.

Pantech customized the DM-P100 to work with the specific Disney mobile service features. The Disney Mobile service will launch in June.
You can find more details on the Disney Mobile site and on the Pantech site.

Refresher about Pantech:
Pantech, through its affiliates - Pantech Co., Ltd., Pantech&Curitel Communications, Inc. and Pantech C&I Co. - is the number two mobile phone company in South Korea and is the seventh largest handset manufacturer in the world.
In 2005, Pantech affiliate Pantech&Curitel Communications acquired SK Teletech Co., the handset manufacturing arm of SK Telecom, the number one mobile network operator.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
