Pantech Vega X – the first Android phone DDR2 memory?
Slated to be available in South Korea later this week via KT and LG Telecom, the Pantech Vega X runs Android 2.2 Froyo and features a 4 inch WVGA touchscreen display, 5MP autofocus camera, and a 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8255 processor.
What’s special about the Vega X is that it comes with DDR2 memory (probably 512MB) – as far as I know, it’s the first Android handset to use DDR2. According to Pantech, this makes it 1.5 faster than previous smartphones (which feature DDR1).
“When surfing the Internet, searching the Web, running applications or 3D games, its speed is so fast that it could threaten the existence of personal computers,” said Pantech Vice President Lee Eung-joon.
Pantech may want to include some DDR2 goodness in that P8000 Moon, too, which could be launched by AT&T in the US.
The company plans to launch more than 10 different smartphone models in 2011. I assume most of them will run Android.
