Pantech today announced that UT Starcom will be the exclusive distributor for its CDMA handsets in the Americas for the next three years. Until this year, Pantech was one of many manufacturers that produced phones sold under the UT Starcom brand here in the US. However, at the beginning of the year, Pantech announced they would be selling phones under their own brand instead. The manufacturer has now settled on some middle ground.

those phones are not true nokias anyway, just a pathetic attempt by nokia to keep their brand name in the cdma market for the time being. I like Nokia, but I want a nokia, not a ut starcom or a pantech with the nokia name on it, not the same thing in ...

I wonder if this article wasn't just mis-interpreted? Maybe it could be Pantech is the exclusive manufacturer of UT Starcom CDMA handsets. Because I also thought they were under contract with Nokia to make at least one more CDMA phone. And with Nok...
