Dreaming of a dual-screen Android 2.2 clamshell? Samsung W899 demands you relocate to China

Dreaming of a dual-screen Android 2.2 clamshell? Samsung W899 demands you relocate to China
Samsung W899 is a Froyo-running clamshell with two independent 3.3" Super AMOLED screens of WVGA resolution. It also has other top-shelf specs with a 1GHz CPU, 5MP camera with flash and HD video recording, 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory expansion slot. Besides the dual-screen surprise, it also supports both CDMA (800/1900MHz) and GSM (900/1800/1900) bands for global roaming. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS go without saying. Sounds like a dream come true for clamshell lovers, if the world wasn't such a cruel place.

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.
