Samsung's C9920: Windows Mobile 6.1 on board

The skinny, Qwerty-keyboard equipped handset can make calls across three GSM bands and suck down data across HSDPA 3G links. It's got 20MB of on-board memory backed by a 1GB Micro SD card, though other carriers may choose to bundle higher capacity cards or no card at all.

The handset measures 113 x 63 x 12mm and weighs 109g.
