Samsung 10.9mm skinny phone slips into Europe

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Samsung has launched its Ultra Edition II 10.9 - more prosiacally also known as the SGH-U600 - in Europe - for a second time. It first showed the 10.9mm-thick slider phone back in February at the 3GSM show.

Samsung Ultra Edition II 10.9 aka SGH-U600

Still, it did reveal more about the phone's feature set this time round. Before, we know the U600 would be a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE handset with 60Mb of memory, Bluertooth 2.0, a 22in, 240 x 320, 262,144-colour screen and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

To that we can now add a Band & Olufsen digital power amplifier, integrated Yahoo! searching and an intelligent power system designed to give such a thin handset - with an equally skinny battery - a decent talk time. Not that Samsung said what it was.

The U600 went on sale in France yesterday, Samsung said, and will be appearing in shops in other European countries through the rest of April. The handset will be made available in a choice of seven colours, including beige, blue, red, silver, white, black and brown.
