Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is introducing five new mobile phones for the European market. The average of the new phones are under 15mm and offer the latest multimedia features, such as music playback capability, megapixel camera and Bluetooth connectivity. The lineups include two 3G phones (model: SGH-Z510, SGH-Z540), two slide-up GSM/GPRS phones (model: SGH-D800, SGH-D820), and a credit-card size mobile phone (Model: SGH-P300).
