Smart S100: the slimphone with a silly keypad

Chris Ziegler

There are slimmer phones on the market, sure, but the 7.7 millimeter, Asia-only Smart S100 has that poorly-faked-iPod look that Samsung simply doesn't have anywhere in their product lineup. With the exception of the unfortunate dual-band 900 / 1800 GSM radio with nothing more than GPRS to feed it data, the phone's specs aren't half bad, with a 160 x 128 OLED display, 2-megapixel cam, and that Nokia 3650-style circular keypad we all love (or love to hate). Without even a single US-friendly GSM band, we think we've probably spent too much time on this thing already, but it's fascinating to know that a no-name phone can beat virtually every major manufacturer in the slimphone game.
