Huawei’s New Phone Is the Thinnest In The World… How Thin? Crazy Thin.

Our own David Song, head of GMIC 2012, is in Las Vegas for CES 2012.  He’s loving Sin City, but when he isn’t catching some rays by the pool, we’ve got him hunting down the latest happenings at CES from China this year.  He sent back word our friends over at Huawei officially unveiled their latest entry into the mobile phone market – the Ascend P1 and P1 S.

So what’s so special about these phones?  Well, the P1 S is world’s thinnest phone at 0.26 inches thick.  The P1 is the P1 S’ chubby sister.  But don’t worry, the P1 isn’t a girl you’d turn down a date with – it’s only .3 inches thick.  For comparison, the Droid RAZR is 0.3 inches thick.

The phones are believed to be priced at around $400 and will be available in U.S., Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australia in April.  David says the phones feel solid despite their dimensions – a comforting thought since my initially reaction was that it would probably snap in two riding around in my pocket.
