Samsung X820Samsung is not shy about identifying its "World firsts" and that tradition continues with the Samsung X820 (also known as the Ultra Edition 6.9). At a mere 6.9mm, the X820 is the self-described world's thinnest handset. In comparison to other handsets, the X820 is astoundingly thin: Motorola RAZR V3 (14mm), Nokia N90 (24mm), Motorola Q (12mm).

Features of the Samsung X820 include:

  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Fiberglass-infused plastic case
  • Triband GSM (900/1800/1900) plus EDGE
  • 176×220 262K color screen
  • Bluetooth
  • Weight of 66g, full size: 113 × 50 x 6.9 mm

The X820 will first hit the Russian market next month, followed by other European markets. No word on pricing.
