Samsung's mobile record wears thin

To the Olympic watchwords of 'Faster, Stronger, Higher', may we add 'Thinner', for Olympics sponsor Samsung has outdone its own record and once again

To the Olympic watchwords of 'Faster, Stronger, Higher', may we add 'Thinner', for Olympics sponsor Samsung has outdone its own record and once again produced the world's slimmest slide phone.Dethroning the waif-like D900, the even waifier 'Ultra Edition 10.9' is a mere, yup, you guessed it, 10.9mm thick. For ruler clutching obsessives that's 2mm thinner than its forbear.Despite the weight loss, nothing is shorn from the feature list which still boasts a 3.2mp camera, mp3 and video player, stereo Bluetooth for wireless headphones, TV-Out and a microSD slot.Expect a formal announcement very soon at 3GSM in Barcelona.
