Samsung launches SCH-W480 with inner zoom, outer bulkiness

Samsung's handsets have been all about razor thin, good cameras and long spec sheets of late, and the SCH-W480 fills most of those categories, but falls a bit short -- and fat -- of attaining thin-dom in this case. Featuring a 3X optical zoom, 5 megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, WCDMA / GSM roaming for worldwide enjoyment, Bluetooth, and a microSD slot for memory expansion. Admittedly, it packs a 3X optical zoom into its beefy housing that rather than extending outside the case does all it's zooming inside -- though we'd still prefer to roll with thin and svelte, not high tech and hidden. No word on pricing on the W480 -- that we promised we wouldn't compare to the N95 -- but hopefully we'll hear more soon. Granted, this isn't likely coming to a carrier near you in the US as it's all Anycall branding suggests, but feel free to import and let us know what ya think.
