VK7000 is slim, packs 3G features


    VK might not be a huge name here in North America, but it’s making quite a bit of headway into the business with a whole slew of super slim handsets, even if some of the designs are blatant rip-offs of other company’s. Like the VK X1200 before it, the VK7000 is incredibly skinny with only 9.9 mm in thickness, but that doesn’t mean that it’s starving for features, because you’ll find a whole bunch of 3G goodness in this tight little package.

    For starters, there is 1GB of flash memory on-board, in addition to 512MB of SRAM. This is great for its audio and video playback capabilities, supporting such formats as MPEG, AAC, MP3, and AAC+. For video telephony, there is a simple VGA camera mounted on the front, but for your real picture-taking needs, you’ll turn to the 1.3 megapixel shooter on the back.

    Latching onto web content is easy with MIDP, WAP, and Flash support. The TFT display is adequate at 1.8-inches and 260k colors, and you’ll be able to expand the memory with a Micro MMC card.

    No word on pricing or availability on the UMTS (2.1GHz) / GSM (tri-band) VK7000.
