Motorola Unveils Updated PEBL in South Korea

Motorola unveiled on Thursday in South Korea a new version of its PEBL cell phone.

At first glance the handset doesn't appear to have an external display but like some other recent phones from competitors it's hidden under the outside case. When buttons on the phone are pressed, the case appears to come to life with illumination.

The so-called hidden display is touch-sensitive and can display pictures and be used for navigation and control of the phone's settings.

Features of the new WCMDA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) handset include high-speed 7.2M bps (bits per second) data transfer, Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera and MP3 player. It's available now through SK Telecom in South Korea. Overseas launch details were not announced.
