Samsung X830: switchblade shape, iPod-style controls

Samsung X830 Music Phone

Music-capable phones in ultra-thin forms are extremely common this summer, but ultimately most of their designs follow the same concepts from before. Most of Samsung's own lineup this year follows this trend. A notable exception is the new X830. Currently available in Europe and Korea, the X830's interface and shape should make it easier to hold and use as a music player. The phone abandons the standard three-key-wide layout for a narrower slider shape that you can grip more completely with one hand. On the outside, a scroll wheel lets users manage beyond the usual pause and track skipping features. The phone also includes 1GB of built-in memory and a card slot for more. There is no news on details of a possible North American release. Click through for a full-size photo.
