    So, I've tried finding out more about this phone as I've become obsessed with slim lttl candybar phones. Unfortunately, every link I can find basically leads back to the link I've posted! I really want to know if maybe this is just some great photoshopping someone's managed or if Samsung truly is going to release it.

    Any thoughts?

    It does look a bit ugly at first, but I think the design does grow on you after a bit (or at least, it did for me since I love retro stuff). I have a feeling that if Samsung releases this, I'll be jumping off Moto's ship.

    I'm with you, I'd buy that in a second... I'm all about stuff that doesn't look ordinary (ie. shoes... wife says I always end up buying the ugliest possible shoes).

    I found this picture from one of Korean newspaper. It is real and they said that it will be on the european market by end of this year. Those card looking phone is 8.9mm and other are 14.9mm and 15.9mm and 98g with 1.3 mp camera, bluetooth, mp3 player and file viewer.

    Thanks for that :) Very informative...8.9mm is AMAZING...mmm...I still don't believe they can fit the specs the other sites have talked of into a shell that thin...but I'll buy it if they do!

    End of the year? Hopefully before December is over...that'd be such a fun Xmas gift to myself :D

    Wow!

    I typed in Samsung P300 to get more info on it off google and this thread came up amongst the first searches...score :)

    It's really REAL! But, it doesn't have a transflash card slot...darn...maybe not as hot now...
