If you've been looking for a not-small-enough-to-be-a-phone-but-not-big-enough-to-be-a-tablet device (and the Dell Streak 5 just isn't your cup of tea), then the upcoming Pantech Vega No.5 may be just what the doctor ordered. Before we dive into the specs, you should be aware that there is no word on when (or if) the Vega No.5 will ever become available internationally, but it will be available in Korea later this month.

With that out of the way, here are the deetz:

  • 5" 800*480 display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB DDR2 RAM
  • 16GB On-board storage
  • 8MP rear camera with 1080p video capture
  • front camera (no exact specs given)
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

And a 5 minute video demo:

It definitely looks like the Vega No.5 packs a nice punch underneath its semi-large hood. Here's to hoping that this device gets some US love!

    holy raptor jesus, that thing is huge. . .

    A five inch screen with only 480 x 800 resolution? Say hello to pixelmania!

    • chekorama

      you have to read with attention before post some comment, screen resolution it's 800*480

      • Rich

        It is the same resolution as the Evo's 4.3" screen while being much larger. Resolution is going to suck on this.

        Otherwise I love the specs and bing someone with big hands (I can palm a basketball) I'd love a 5" phone screen, but not going to sacrifice resolution for it.

    This isn't bad I have always wanted something big that I can make calls on. I wish a 7inch tab existed but this is ok...I am still going for my Evo 3d very soon locked bootloader and all

    What frequencies? I will import. I know a bunch of people I can sell this too if I can sell unlocked.
