Samsung's SCH-B500 gets golder (and browner)

Changing the color of a phone in an effort to extend its serviceable shelf life? Oldest trick in the book, we say. Not that the 13.5mm-thick B500 slider from Samsung doesn't still rock on its own accord, but by Korean standards, it's ancient -- and what's with the measly 2 megapixel camera? We kid, we kid! Destined only for the domestic market right now, the SCH-B5000 "Magic Gold" and SCH-B5050 "Magic Brown" are dead ringers for the original B500 (DMB tuner and all) but as the names pretty clearly indicate, they've turned gold and brown, respectively. Thanks to the phone's magnesium shell, we reckon the gold plating probably looks pretty realistic, too -- but heck, even Europe may not ever get these, so the odds of an American release are just this side of nil.
