:D Yes, eXtremely Zexy phone. Samsung knows what to manufacture. I use Ultra series 6.9mm, impatiently waiting for U100. The single thing i didn't like, the very big and "very simple" samsung logo above the screen (talking about X820, ultra series 6.9mm).
And about N.America - did you see "black charcoal" (or smth like this) on samsung global? (espesially for USA & Can. market)
