Samsung goes thinner than Razr

Round-up

CTIA Motorola used CTIA to make its Razr phone line more music friendly. The new 3m phone for CDMA networks adds a micro SD slot that takes up to 1GB cards. The 3i, aimed at Asia Pacific GSM operators, had already added the feature. Most of the other specs remain unchanged.

The innovation doesn't stop there. Motorola added three new colors to its Razr range.

Who's Samsung copying this week? Apple, apparently. The Korean giant's star CTIA offering is a rectangular GSM/EDGE handset that's less than a centimeter thick. The T509 bears more than a passing resemblance to the iPod nano, and is 2mm thinner than the Razr. Samsung also unveiled a communicator with a keyboard licensed from RIM, the T719, a clamshell for Sprint PCS that features an external OLED, the A960, and a mid-range clamshell for Cingular.

Sony Ericsson overhaued its Z520 clamshell by adding push to talk capability, for the Z525. Contrary to what we reported earlier, it does support the 850Mhz band, so expect to see it on a large US carrier (that rhymes with "Mingular") soon. Sony Ericsson unveiled another Walkman branded model, as we reported earlier.

Nokia has the most ground to make up in the States, and its 6126 targets Motorola's Pebl with a small clamshell that packs a high spec. No camera or Bluetooth, but quad-band GSM (including the 850Mhz band), micro-SD slot, and a 16m color, 320 x 240 internal display. Nokia said it will ship in Q2. ®
