Samsung C220

Samsung continued its drive towards slimmer phones on Thursday morning with the C220. Nicknamed the "miniskirt" in part for the hint of the sliding keypad underneath, the handset is one of the Korean designer's slimmer fashion phones at 10.9mm (0.43 inches) thick in an iPod-like white color. Form is also backed up by function, Samsung claims. Incorporating a 2-megapixel camera and MP3 playback, the C220 also shares features often left out of its class, such as GPS navigation and a dictionary. Bluetooth with A2DP audio and mobile broadband access are also part of the package.

The phone is available today as the C220 through Korea's SK Telecom for slightly under $540 without discounts and should reach other national providers KTF as the C2200 and LG Telecom as the C2250. A release of the phone outside of its Korean home is possible, but currently unlikely.
