At the 3G World Congress event in Hong Kong, I had the chance to play around with a lot of new handsets, including NEC's very interesting L1 clamshell.
This 11.9mm thin phone is the thinnest 2.5G clamshell phone in the world today, and it gained the most attention of all the devices in NEC's booth this year. It is a triband GSM (900/1800/1900hz) handset with Bluetooth, and should be introduced in Europe soon. It is already available here in Hong Kong.
The battery, unfortunately, is non-removable. But otherwise on the bright side, the camera is a 1.3MP CMOS unit, the external display is OLED, and the main display is a 65K color TFT with 176x220 pixel resolution. The tactile feeling of the keypad is average, but build quality is excellent.
