Samsung today confirmed that it has made a $48 million investment in competitor Pantech, which gives it 10% ownership of the company. "The investment is aimed at solidifying our relationship with Pantech, a key component customer of Samsung," said the company in a statement. "Samsung will have no involvement in Pantech’s business management in any way or form." The two competitors already collaborate on semiconductor and display technologies. Pantech sells a mix of feature phones and smartphones in the U.S. through AT&T.

I hope Sprint doesnt end up selling Pantech phones. Not a fan of what they have.
Pantech devices are usually on Virgin Mobile, or used to anyways. I had no idea they were still making devices lol.
