Thinner than a Razr? Samsung's SGH-X820

At a mere 0.27 inches thick, Samsung's newest handset, the eloquently named SGH-X820, purports to be the world's thinnest phone. Some say it's thin enough to be a bookmark, but the phone still manages to serve as an MP3 player with 80 MB of storage, Bluetooth, a 2 megapixel camera and a video port that can synch the phone up to TV sets or computer monitors for photo viewing. Not too shabby for a wafer. The handset is set to be launched commercially in Europe and Russia this month and China next month. No word on if or when it comes to the U.S. or on its pricing.
