Samsung claims top spot in slim phone stakes


Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s third-largest handset maker, said yesterday it has developed a new mobile phone, which it claims is the slimmest in the world. The SGH-X820 model, which is just 6.9 millimeters (around one-quarter of an inch) thick, is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera, an MP3 player and video-recording capability, Samsung Electronics said in a statement. Pricing details were not disclosed. The phone will be showcased at a telecom industry fair this week in Russia, called Sviaz Expocomm 2006, the Korean company said. Samsung Electronics has launched a set of ultra-thin handsets after its bigger rival, Motorola Inc. of the United States, experienced runaway success with its popular Razr models.
