The handset is heading to China Telecom only, and was unveiled with an artists' show in the land of the Great Wall. We have always appreciated a good clamshell design, moreover one that is running Android 2.2, and has the same display image open or closed, would be on top of our list.
Thus we are willing to overlook the relative thickness of 0.69" (17.5mm), if only Sammy decided to bring the Samsung W899 for the rest of the world to enjoy. Looking at the Anycall branding on the press photos, it should also appear in South Korea, so our hopes for worldwide dissemination are still strong. Have a look at a brief preview video below - it seems that the handset comes in at least two colors, beige and black.
