3GSM 2006

Intro Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Comments  34  

Samsung i320 Samsung Z600 Pantech 8300 *  

We showed you the Pantech 8300 last month at CES. Not much has changed since then, except that now we can show you the 8300 with Helio's special main menu.

 

That little curly flame icon is Helio's logo. This basically just confirms what we knew already: that the 8300 is coming to the U.S. as a Helio launch phone.

AD       article continues below...

It also means you can see what is essentially the face of Helio in the form of that menu, which we assume will be standard across all Helio phones.

Also since CES, it's been rumored that all Helio phones are expected to have Wi-Fi. Presumably this would include the 8300.

On the prototype on display at 3GSM, the rest of the phone's UI is plain and/or remnants from the Korean version.

Update (Feb 15, 2006): Pantech's PR folks contacted us and asked us to add that "Business negotiations between Pantech and Helio are still underway [and] the handset was on show at 3GSM with the Helio main menu strictly for demonstration purposes."
