Am I sitting in a thin can?

The handset measures 4.65 inches tall and 2.56 inches wide. Its profile is 0.48 inch, making it relatively thin as far as sliders go. However, at 5.92 ounces, it feels pretty dense and heavy in the hand.

Powering the handset are a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and a 1,700mAh battery.
