CTIA 2006 -- Samsung introduced its answer to Motorola's slim SLVR by announcing the t509. At just 9.8mm thick, the t509 qualifies as the thinnest handset for the US market. It's not as thin as the EV-K100 in Korea (7.9mm), but it makes the RAZR (14mm) and SLVR (11mm) seem chunky.

Features of the Samsung t509 include:

  • Bluetooth
  • EDGE high-speed data
  • 262K color screen
  • VGA camera

We expect the t509 to debut on T-Mobile USA around May.
