Make them any thinner and these mobiles would be slicing chunks off our cauliflower ears. Still, that's not stopped Samsung taking the plastic guard off what it's claiming to be the world's thinnest mobile phone to add to its world's thinnest 7MP, 7x zoom camera.It's dubbed the Ultra Edition II 5.9 (pictured) on account of its knife-edge 5.9mm thinness, meaning it can squeeze through cracks that even an iPod Nano would back away from.And yet it still manages Bluetooth, 70MB memory and a 3MP cam – possibly making it the world's thinnest camera too (answers on a postcard please).Among Samsung’s other telephony waifs officially unveiled at 3GSM are the 10.9 and 12.1, both sliders with the latter's beefiness accounted for by the addition of 3G, and the 9.6 which takes the 5.9 and slots it in a clamshell form with a bigger screen.They'll all be slipping into stores later in the year in various hues of blue, red, platinum and gold.For all the latest news straight from the floor of 3GSM, keep your powerful peepers locked onto our Live Stuff blog.
