Pantech Sportive phone gets 3-inch screen, DMB TV

Korea's Pantech on Monday announced the release of its latest handset, the IM-U540L, also known as the Sportive. The phone has a 3-inch touchscreen and a 3-megapixel camera, while built-in widgets will let users access video and music on demand, as well as weather information. Bluetooth will be supported, and users will be able to view TV broadcasts thanks to its DMB TV tuner.

A GPS sensor will help in navigation and can be used in conjunction with Google Maps. The handset will play back MP3 files captured and converted directly from original music CDs. The Sportive will be available in red, blue and silver through Korean provider LG Telecom, though prices are not available. [via Akihabara]
