Pantech and S.T. Dupont intro new luxury touch phone

One of Korea's biggest cellphone makers, Pantech, has teamed up with French firm S.T. Dupont to introduce a new luxury touchscreen phone. With a design inspired by DuPont's iconic lighters, the Pantech Sky DuPont IM-U510LE features a 3-inch touchscreen display and a 3-megapixel camera, but it only works (for now) as a 2G handset.

The luxury aspect of the phone comes from the device's 18k gold-plated edges that nicely accent the overall black body. Priced at around $800, you can see video of the new Pantech Sky DuPont in action here.
