Pantech Rekindles Relationship With UT Starcom
Sep 26, 2006, 4:49 AM by (staff)
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. Though UT Starcom will be responsible for its CDMA handsets, Pantech will sell GSM and UMTS phones under its own brand. Pantech branded phones are currently sold on Verizon and Cingular.
Couldn't hack it?
I guess Pantech was having trouble moving its CDMA handsets without UT Starcom's assistance?
UTs won't have anything to do with the actual manufacturing, but i think they were selling fine from vzw ...
Pantech & Nokia?
