We don't see a lot of dual-mode action around here, but in areas of the world where cell coverage is a disjoint patchwork of GSM and CDMA networks, having the capability to switch between services seems like a nifty trick. Samsung's no stranger to the concept, and its latest dual-mode model kinda makes us wish we had a need for such fancy technological trickery: meet the W629, a neat lookin' little phone in the vein of the company's so-called credit card phones featuring a 2.6 inch display, 3 megapixel cam, and Bluetooth. It should hit mainland China before the end of the year.
