The Samsung SGH-X820 is a mere 6.9mm thin
unveiled what the company claims
is the world's slimmest mobile phone. The new phone, the Samsung SGH-X820, was unveiled yesterday during Sviaz Expocomm 2006, a telecom fair being held in Moscow. The SGH-X820, a 6.9 mm thick cell and weighs 66 grams, has an MP3 player that is capable of holding up to 80MB of onboard music files. Along with the ability to play music, a 2 megapixel camera that also records video is included. If users are wanting even more features, Bluetooth connectivity and a TV-out jack is included. According to
The Korea Times
Samsung plans to market the bar-type model, the SGH-X820, in Europe this month at a hefty price, which the firm refused to reveal, as the phone adopts a European technology. Next month, the ultra-thin model will land in China and the outfit is considering whether or not to convert the phone’s current format (GSM) to that of Korea and the United States (CDMA).
Of course, many US providers can use the GSM version of this phone, so expect to see a few filter into the market here and there. The battle of mobile size began after the quick success of the Razr line of Motorola phones.

My mom has a Panasonic X something-rather-thin, and while handy for the pocket (she keeps it in her purse anyway), the battery life sucks a fat one. It only goes for like a day. Fatter smartphones Nokia has need to be thinner and lighter, not simple stuff like the Samsung. Oh well...

My RAZR's battery life sucks my junk. I only get about 2 solid days of use out of it, and its brand new! I hate the bloated Motorola interface too.
