Samsung has created a 0.8mm razor thin LCD screen. The thinner screen makes the surface easier to read. In addition, it's shock proof, so the screen is perfect for mobile applications. The 2.2 inch LCD features 240x320 QVGA resolution and a 500:1 contrast ratio. Pricing and availability has not yet been released.
