With Samsung having announced a slew of “Ultra Edition” handsets at 3GSM a few months ago, is the company throwing a bone to the entry-level handset market with that awesome thinness? You bet — and it’s going to come packaged as the C170. Weighing in at 72 grams and with a nice 8.9mm figure, the C170 is not as thin as some newer Samsung handsets that are in the 5.9mm to 6.99mm range, but those extra 2 millimeters will save you some serious dough. Rumored to cost around $100 without subsidies (we’re thinking free after subsidies), the C170 is “just a phone” but features a decent feature set for an entry-level model. Onboard is Class 8 GPRS (no EDGE here), a 128 x 128, 65,000 color display, WAP 1.2.1, and FM radio, 550-space phonebook and a paltry but livable 600KB of onboard memory. You really didn’t think the C170 would come with over a meg o’memory inside, right?
