Samsung Ultra 5.9 Ships

Samsung today at last released the Ultra 5.9, also known as the C210. Introduced as far back as January, the phone still delivers on its record-setting, namesake 5.9mm (0.23-inch) thickness though has made a slight sacrifice in camera quality compared to the original plans: a 2-megapixel sensor replaces the ambitious 3.2-megapixel version first set to appear in the wafer-like bar phone. Nevertheless, the design still finds room for Bluetooth, EVDO Internet, and 80MB of flash to store a modest amount of MP3 music.

The Ultra's first carrier will be Korea's SK Telecom, which is putting the phone on sale today for $430. A release in Europe is expected soon in GSM form with the upcoming U100, though whether either iteration of the phone will be available in North America hasn't been verified. [via AVING]
