From the beginning itself Pantech has been noted for bringing about new innovations and bold new designs. This innovative spirit has earned them the “Best of innovations” prize in the year 2008.Their design experiments include phones like the Pantech Reveal that packs in two keyboards, a full numeric one and a vertical sliding full QWERTY keyboard. Pantech has again made history by introducing their latest model Pantech Vega LTE which is in fact one of the first android devices to feature gesture control.
We all have had situations where when the phone rings and our hands may be dirty or wet. The gesture control comes into play in situations like this. You can control the phones features by just the wave of the hand that is in the above situation you can answer the call by just waving your hand in air above the phone. This unique feature not only allows you to answer or reject calls but also lets you browse through your gallery or pinch zoom a photo etc without actually touching the phone.
The reports say that the new phone is loaded with lot of cool features and has incorporated state of the art technologies. The phone will feature a 4.5 inch screen with 1280x800 resolutions. This high resolution screen will ensure crystal clear images and will be sufficient enough to enjoy high definition videos or games on the move. The device will run on a 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor. This high end processor is fit enough to run a tablet pc. The phone also packs in a whopping 1GB of RAM.
Vega will have an 8 Mega pixel main camera and a 1.3 Mega pixel front facing camera. The front facing camera can be used for making video calls and also for taking self portraits. The phone offers 16GB internal storage memory. This large amount of internal memory would mean that there would be no need for further addition of external memory cards. There is enough space for all your music, pictures and documents and still there will be a lot of space left for you to play around with. It has an 1830mAh battery so it would ensure sufficient standby as well as talk time. The phone surely has an interesting combination of specs.
This cutting edge gesture control was developed as a result of Pantech’s alliance with the Israel based company eyesight. h free controls for digital electronic equipments including desktops, gaming consoles etc. So the obvious fact is that they were also responsible for the development of hands free control for Pantech mobiles. The hands free controls are made possible by making use of the phones front camera. So this technology can be used in any device having a front facing camera and which packs in eyesight technology. This system is so effective that it can even work with VGA cameras.
