Samsung Olympics phone

Reflecting its position as the "official cellphone manufacturer" for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Samsung has announced the P318+, clad on the back and sides with authentic 18-carat gold. The launch of the phone, the date of which is unavailable, will also see the release of a variety of Olympic downloads, including ringtones, wallpapers and video clips, possibly including event highlights.

The P318+ is otherwise based on the existing P310, notable mainly for its compact "credit card" shape. It also boasts Bluetooth 2.0 and a two-megapixel camera, which can be used to record stills and MPEG-4 video. Music playback supports AAC, MP3 and WMA formats. Being branded for the Korean carrier AnyCall, it is doubtful that a North American version will appear. [via Akihabara News]
