KT Tech unveils “Korea’s PlayStation phone,” the TAKE HD

▲ TAKE HD launched by KT Tech

The so-called “PlayStation Phone,” specifically designed for those who like playing games, was launched in Korea.

On January 3, KT and KT Tech launched the Android-powered TAKE HD, which can be used for various purposes by interfacing with laptops, tablet PCs, and game kits.

The TAKE HD caught much attention when it was unveiled as the Spider at the IFA 2011, Europe’s largest Appliance Exhibition. The Spider can be utilized for a variety of purposes. Currently, game kits have hit the stands along with the smartphone, and laptops and pad kits will followed.

Laptops and pad kits exclusively designed for TAKE HD cannot be separately used, but when TAKE HD docks with these accessories, it can serve as a notebook computer or a tablet PC.

The game kit for the new KT smartphone is similar to portable game consoles or joy pads. With the kit, users can play smartphone games as though they were portable console-type games. The game kit works with the built-in games, Zenoia 3 and Asphalt 6. In addition, the TAKE HD can serve as a USB host through a smart function called On The Go (OTG), which enables the new smartphone to freely connect to various devices such as a monitor, external memory, a keyboard, and a mouse.

To celebrate the launch of the TAKE HD, KT Tech will provide a game kit to those who buy a TAKE HD phone by the end of February. The game kit offers a far more dynamic playing environment than smartphone users could enjoy without it. Initially there will be ten different games available, including Real Soccer 2011 and Asphalt 6. The phone’s exclusive wireless service provider is KT.
