Son of Sam

Samsung has just launched a 3G phone that tips the scales at a featherlight 95g, the first third generation handset to weigh under 100g. Samsung, if you're reading this, well done you

Samsung's Z500 isn't its first foray into the 3G market, but this is the first time it's managed to pop out a 3G phone without an unsightly stub aerial. Twin cameras, pumping out VGA and megapixel resolution, handle video calling, while Bluetooth handles wireless duties.

The 262k-colour screen is pin-sharp and should you require a little more storage, an external Transflash slot is provided. All in all, a tasty little phone. Incidentally, 95g is roughly the same weight as our toy Batmobile, as a point of reference.

In other news, Samsung has also just launched its latest ladyphone, the E530. Slinky, curvy and pastel-coloured just like ladies. Ahh, ladies.
