KTFT-EV-K100, 7.9mm thin candybar handset

Mar 20 2006 - 03:14 PM ET | LG Mobile Phone, Staff Picks

KTFT EV-K100 While it's not headed stateside, the KTFT EV-K100 is still worth a look for its extremely thin figure--just 7.9mm thick. It almost makes the Motorola RAZR V3 (14mm) clunky. To put the numbers in perspective, 7.9mm is almost exactly 1mm thicker than the iPod nano.

The South Korean handset manages to pack in a decent feature set for its size:

  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • MP3 player
  • 1.8" screen
  • 165MB memory
  • Weight of just 60g

LG just announced a planned acquisition KTFT, so it's possible the engineering behind this handset will be able to have an effect on some more mainstream phones.
