    While Pantech has a relatively modest presence in the U.S., it has a number of impressive handsets in Korea. One such offering is the Vega Racer, which claims to be the world's first 1.5 GHz dual-core smartphone. That's certainly a lot of power in a tiny device--it uses Qualcomm's MSM8660 Snapdragon chip, 1GB of RAM, and an Adreno 220 GPU. It's also not a petite handset, looming large with a 4.3-inch LCD. Other features include an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. We're still in the dark regarding pricing, availability, and even the OS version, and we have no clue if it'll arrive on our shores at all. But we can dream, can't we? Oh, and Pantech says its working on a tablet as well.

    It's a shame that Pantech sucks...I have never seen a good phone from them.

    Can't Edit...

    An unlocked bootloader may change my mind though...if the Droid3 cannot be rooted.

    If this came to the US with an unlocked bootloader I'm sure devs would jump all over it. It'd be like the second coming of the Droid lol. Give me this or a S2. Please....

    This is the same company that made the Helio Ocean (my previous handset device), and I was pretty happy with the build quality and overall performance of that phone. I'd be interested to check out anything they offered in the US that runs Android, as the OS was the major drawback with the Ocean.

    A phone with a locked bootloader can still be rooted, you just can't make custom kernels for it I believe

    Locked bootloader can be rooted, just can't load any unsigned software
