In the cruelly fickle and anorexic world of handheld devices, 0.07 millimeters can be the difference between love and rejection. So for the moment, at least, the Thinner Than Thou Award apparently belongs to Samsung, which has developed an LCD no thicker than a credit card at 0.82 millimeters.

Newlaunches says the new 240- by 320-pixel screen, which is scheduled for mass production in the second half of 2007, obliterates the previous record by a whopping 0.07 millimeters. At this size, every fraction counts: Even the screen's surface measurement comes in two sizes, of 2.1- and 2.2-inch diagonal versions.
