April 7, 2006 Following the global trend towards slim, wide-screened phone designs that was created by Motorola’s RAZR, Samsung today unveiled a super slim bar phone that is expected to be the thinnest available in the U.S. when it launches this spring. The Samsung t509, displayed for the first time at the CTIA Wireless 2006 trade show, is just 9.8 mm thick and becomes the third slim phone design from Samsung, adding to the company’s existing a900 clamshell and t809 slider models.

The t509 features high-speed EDGE connectivity and Bluetooth wireless technology to support delivery of entertainment and information on-demand services. The phone boasts large, vivid 262K-color screens, ideal for watching streaming videos or viewing images taken with the phone’s integrated camera.

Global products announced earlier this year and on display at CTIA include the credit-card sized SGH-P300 phone, which measures 8.9 mm and comes packed with a 1.3 megapixel camera, music player and advanced video recording capabilities. Samsung's SGH-D870 is the world's thinnest three megapixel camera phone in a slider form factor, and the SGH-D520 and SCH-Z540 are both slim, elegantly designed multimedia phones.
