We knew we could squeeze more gadgetry out of these Beijing Olympic Games than a solitary Lenovo laptop, desirable as it is.This super-slim slider is Samsung's contribution.

Just a hunch, that’s all.EssentialsSamsung E848Price: TBAOn sale: TBAContact: SamsungRelated stories:Samsung E590 has designs on your camphoneSamsung’s new sliding smartie slips outLenovo laptop gets Olympic makeoverReview: Samsung Ultra Edition II
