Samsung V9900 Phone
Samsung used the recent Korea Electronics Show to unveil what is likely the slimmest mainstream phone yet available. Its V9900 handset is only 0.27 inches thick, rendering it thinner still than even the company's own T-Mobile Trace. Even so, Samsung says it hasn't sacrificed features to achieve these dimensions. As available now, the V9900 has a two-megapixel camera, a 320x240 screen, and MP3 music playback support. While no plans have been formally announced to release the phone in the US, in its current form it connects to CDMA networks and supports EVDO -- pointing to a possible introduction with US cellular providers such as Verizon in the coming months.
