Pantech Vega N5 monster Gingerbread handset announced

In our quest to bring you all the tech news from around the globe, Pocket-lint often stumbles across a Korea-only gadget that still deserves a write-up.

And it's usually because of one of two reasons:

1. The spec on the device has the wow factor, making us want to get our mitts on it even if there's little chance.

2. The Korean girl hired to show off the device (as is the norm out there) has the wow factor, making us want to get our mitts on her even if there's little chance.

This write-up ticks both boxes.

The Pantech Vega N5 (or IM-T100K) is an Android 2.3.3 device sporting a whopping 5-inch LCD screen with an impressive 800x480 resolution. It's powered by a super-beefy Qualcomm dual Core 1.5GHz MSM8660 CPU and packs 1GB or DDR2 RAM as well.

There's also an 8-megapixel camera that is capable of shooting Full HD 1080p videos and packs 16GB of internal storage.

It's available now in Korea. Worth the trip? Maybe...although the girl isn't included.
