May 9, 2006 Pantech will demonstrate a finger writing recognition phone at the SVIAZ Expo Comm trade show in Moscow, Russia, this week. The PG-2800 GSM model’s keypad recognizes and processes the individual user’s writing of text messages. Consumers can either push individual keys or write letters with their fingers on the keypad when looking up words in the electronic dictionary or sending text messages. The ‘finger writing recognition’ avails faster, more convenient communication and is especially useful for inputting text in Russian and Chinese characters.
SVIAZ Expo Comm is one of the world’s leading technology and telecommunications trade shows and is aimed at supporting the continuing growth of the technology and telecoms sectors in Russia. Also on display at the event will be three of Pantech’s most sophisticated CDMA450 phones, specifically targeted at Russia and other eastern European markets.
Pantech has exceeded all expectations with its performance in Russia, with growth of more than 100% in sales over the last two years, and is set to expand its customer service facilities in the country. The company plans to introduce 15 new models during 2006 in Russia to further boost its market share.
In 2006, Pantech aims to achieve 27 million in unit sales and USD 4.8 billion in revenues by expanding its global markets, particularly in the U.S., Western Europe, Asia and Russia.
