Slim Samsung cell swivels and scrolls

Samsung Korea releases SGH-X830 phones.

Question: What's slim, shiny, has a scroll wheel, and is both a phone and a digital audio player?

Answer: No, not the iPhone. It's the Samsung SGH-X830, which was released in Korea Wednesday, according to Akihabara News.

Samsung SGH-X830

It's an itty-bitty MP3 player with (gasp!) a scroll wheel that also swivels open to reveal a two-column keypad. It also has Bluetooth capability and takes pictures and video.

The phone/camera/music player comes in standard black, white and a variety of lovely Easter egg shades. While pink gadgets in general are beyond passe, how much do I want the green one?

You heard it here first: Green = the new pink.
