Sky Shooting Star Phone

Pantech's luxury label Sky today unveiled the IM-U200, also known as the Shooting Star. The entire design is built around a unique swivel design whose closed shape recalls the sleeker, rounded lines of a spaceship, according to the company; twisting the display around reveals unusual, ripple-effect directional and number pads. Features themselves are relatively conventional for a mid-range phone with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and MP3 playback likely using microSD for removable storage.

The Shooting Star will be available this week in its Korean homeland for about $547 as a stand-alone device offered through local provider SK Telecom. No plans have been made so far to bring the phone to its Helio division in the US. [via AVING]
