The "world's thinnest" phone, Samsung's SGH-X820, is a little piece of Korea that much of the world can get its hands on -- but not to worry, folks, they're gonna do a little something special just for their home crowd, too. Re-released in Korea as the SPH-V9900, the handset looks to sport a veritable cornucopia of button icons not found on its international sibling, but more importantly (depending on who you ask, anyway) the V9900 will be offered in a wider variety of colors. So if owning a powder blue phone that virtually disappears when you hold it sideways is your calling in life, it's time to pack your bags folks; your device is only half a world away.
