Pantech Sky IM-R200 With Touchscreen Keypad Gets Official
Few weeks ago Akihabara News have reported about the upcoming dual screen Pantech Sky IM-R200 phone.
Today Pantech has made an official announcement about it:
Promoted as a Dual LCD Sliding Phone, the most interesting feature about Pantech IM-R200 is its OLED touchscreen keypad, which replaces normal numerical keypad in this slider.
When you open the phone, a touchscreen slides out and a keypad shows up on it. The keypad can be configured for multiple interfaces, e.g. showing numbers or phonebook contacts to dial a phone, a song list in MP3 player mode or camera functions in camera mode.
Another nice feature in the touch sensitive keypad on Pantech IM-R200 is the implemented haptic controls (most likely via Immersion’s VibeTonz technology). It makes the touchscreen vibrate when a key is pressed, solving the major problem of touchscreen interfaces – the lack of feedback during the operation.
Other features of Pantech Sky IM-R200 Dual LCD Slider include 2 megapixel and VGA camera with face recognition, 2.0″ QVGA 262K Color main display and 1.6″ 262L color OLED LCD.
