While there is absolutely no surprise that Samsung’s latest cell phone offering is tagged with the “look at me, I’m so thin” kind of selling point, I always thought that the “99” marketing speak only came into play for pricing. Not so, apparently, because the Korean mobile phone giant has just unveiled the SGH-D830 clamshell at CommunicAsia 2006 in Singapore, a phone that they’re boasting is only 9.9 mm thick.
Yes, it’s skinny, and yes, it bears a striking resemblance to the RAZR from Motorola, but that’s pretty much all we know about this phone at this time. The large speaker located below the keypad seems to indicate that this could be a musicphone capable of filling a concert hall with tunes, but we can’t say for sure.
Is this the latest in Samsung’s line of uninspiring products? We’ll just have to wait and see.
