Samsung Launches New Ultra Series

The original Ultra series mobile phones from Samsung raised the bar on what was perceived as thin for mobile phones. The slimmest of the lot was the SGH-X820, a mere 6.9mm in thickness. Recently, Samsung also announced a trio of 3G Ultra series phones, one each in the candy-bar, fold and slider form factors, just like in the original series. Even before the dust for that has settled, they have gone ahead and revealed three new handsets that will also bear the "Ultra" moniker - the Ultra Music, Ultra Video and Ultra Messaging mobile phones. We were on site during the ITU Telecom World 2006 exhibition to bring you a glimpse of the new Ultra series as well as some other new offerings from Samsung.
