Pantech will launch a phone with a 15:9 aspect ratio LCD in Korea this month. The U100 is an EV-DO slider designed to double as a portable media player. Its wide screen more closely matches the format of movies and digital television than traditional 4:3 LCDs. The phone includes a MicroSD slot to store a user's own movies and MP3s, as well as video and music on demand capabilities. It also features a 2 Megapixel autofocus camera.

Am I missing something?

Looking at the picture of this phone, I'm left wondering what Pantech means by "15:9"? Do you hold the thing ****eyed?
you just hold it sideways when watching movies/TV
