No SD slot, no 3.5 jack is unthinkable just for a handset that could break if you sit on it!
When is the slim war gonna be irrelevant?

Do you sit on your phones often? I can easily avoid that with any phone.

I think the right thickness of a phone is 8-10mm. Any thinner will make the phone difficult to handle.

I would actually prefer phones aren't under.35" as a minimum. IMO, any smaller is too small to be able to fit enough battery in there.

This phone is not slim, it's anorexic!

no sd card slot,no earphone jack? Who in their right mind would buy this?
It might give Apple ideas though and the next iphone might also be sans 3.5 jack meaning an special iJack adapter being introduced.

Yep. Manufacturer's should ride on other "in" things:
-Big Batteries (a few mah please)
-expandable storage (not so in, but should be!)
-and oh yeah, low price tags!

They will soon be as wide as the SIM cards and they too will be too thick. lol
I like it. Just as a casual phone.
