A Glimpse of the Future of Mobile Telephony

Mobile phones are becoming ever more powerful, incorporating a range of sophisticated IT features. No longer mere telephones, they are becoming handheld IT devices, game stations, and much else besides -- the cut-throat competition alone is forcing manufacturers to come up with more and more uses for the gadgets. You can take a peak at the future of mobile technology with the upcoming models of the big four of Korean handset manufacturers.

Samsung, LG: “Mobile phones are gaming devices, and our company make the best game phones.”

Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics are likely to remain the two biggest local competitors in the industry. LG announced its development of 3D game phone on Jan. 11, to be launched in the second quarter. According to LG, the 3D game phone is powered with the world’s first one-million-polygon-per-second graphic chip, which is five times faster than existing 200,000-polygon-per-second models. The product comes with a 3D game developed by Nexon, one of the leaders of the Korean game industry. It also has a built-in 1.3 million pixel digital camera and a 2.2 inch LCD monitor.

Samsung Electronics has also developed its new game phone, the G1000, with a 1.3-million-polygon-per-second graphic engine. The company is planning to release it in February through KTF. Samsung disagrees with LG’s boast that it is the first to develop a one million polygon game phone.

Pantech says mobile phones are camcorders: SK Teletech says print pictures with your cell phone.

Pantech & Curitel will introduce the camcorder-like PH-L4000V mobile phone this February. Powered with a 2.1 million pixel camera, flash and optical zoom, the product can record camcorder-quality pictures and video clips. The unique design has eared the company an iF Design Award, the biggest design award in Europe.

SK Teletech, meanwhile, will release the new IM-8100 that can be hooked up to printers through PictBridge. Users no longer have to download images to their PCs to develop photos if they have printers with a PictBridge logo on it. The product is also silver-nano-coated -- a favorite this year.
