Korean cellphone carrier SKY will see the introduction of the SKY IM-R100, a multimedia-friendly cellphone from Pantech & Curitel. Right now, only raw stats are known about the upcoming cellphone: it'll sport a 2-megapixel camera, microSD card slot and the usual [tacked on] portable media functionality. Of course, this means it'll probably play your MP3s but perhaps not as well as dedicated devices might. Little else is known about the IM-R100, but the lack of a DMB TV tuner did surprise some folks, given the transmission standard's popularity in Korea. There are, however, a few more pictures after the jump for your viewing pleasure.

With cellphones increasingly playing the dual role of communication device and entertainment focal point, it's only a matter of time until someone gets it right, hopefully in our lifetime.
