Is it just me or do you guys feel uncomfortable with super thin phones such as this in your pocket?? When I put my friend's SGS2 in my pocket and sat down, I was scared to death getting a feeling that the phone is going to break in half!! If SGS2 is 9mm and this is 7mm - that feeling will be amplified!

the japanese are beginning to spin... go NEC-casio-hitachi, sharp, panasonic, kyocera, fujitsu-toshiba, sony ericsson... if japanese will fight neck to neck with other smartphone manufacturer it would be a very tough fight for every manufacturer and we will have a lot of choice in the market.. Yes............

The Infobar looks fantastic! I really like the Japanese phones. In Japan you can buy 16 MP camera phones, you can buy waterproof phones, you can buy 3D screen phones as well.

Samsung tried to make thinner mobile phone and NEC too. but NEC mobilephone is the thinner than Samsung. Samsung made thin mobilephone. You'll say "Good job" but NEC made the thinner phone. You'll say"Too thin and it'll crack". Please don't say" It's nothing to do with Samsung". They are always trying to make something new. This time"thin"mobilephone. That's all.

What`s with this race for the thinnest phone in the world?!?!?! Give it a few more milimeters and bigger battery! Or, first come up with a new and better battery technology and then make 7mm thick phones, consumers really enjoy charging twice a day...

full touch screen fones should be banned. As they cause road accidents and many mistakes. I think qwerty key board is good invention and every andriod and apple must have actual qwerty keyboards also. They can help in good typing, user friendly and hence make true smartphones.

What it does favor though is Sony Ericsson. Its very similar to the Xperia Arc and Play (without the Dpad and buttons).

It looks like a decent device.
