Why would you want it to be? I can't imagine that being very ergonomic, and because the height and width are diminished by such a significant amount, there's no way to fit the same components into a smaller package of a similar thickness.


But they could cut down on the weight! The difference between the Mini & Mini Pro is staggering - not on paper maybe - but when in hand. You can barely tell when you're holding the Mini, not so with the Mini Pro.

Does the keyboard really have to weigh so much??

The keyboard might not, but the mechanism probably adds a tad to the weight.

I think I'm in an interesting minority that I don't want my phone to be ridiculously thin and light. The Galaxy S feels like some cheap dummy model, not like a premium smartphone. And so I like my U20 a lot. It's comfortable to hold and while it's heavy enough to feel substantial to me, it's light enough that I can't really tell if it's in my pocket or not.

Don't think so, Arc is so thin at the center because it doesn't have any thing in that part except screen, battery and the body... LCD screen them self are thick. compare Arc to GS2, they have screen, battery and PCB with component in thinner body coz they have AMOLED which is so thin compared to LCD so they can do this

in case, as I mentioned it before with Arc case, they can't do very thin with LCD... they have to make it thicker...

You may think of 10mm as the last thing they can do with LCD and decent battery... it just a guess but even 10mm may be very difficult for to do.

Don't expect the minis to be thin, they'll probably be similar to the existing ones. Or else how will they put all the hardware (CPU, memory, camera, etc, etc) plus a good battery?

I'm with you on this one. Every time I hold one of these extremely thin phones, I have to be extra careful cos I'm afraid of dropping it. They usually feel flimsy. I like phones that are solid and make you feel like you're actually holding something.

As for the Mini Pro, I'm fiine with the dimensions (except the screen ). My issue is with the weight only, especially when using the qwerty keyboard. The difference in weight between the upper and lower halves unbalances the phone.

I think the Arc is ugly, too thin, too light & I prefer the Neo which I am getting. I prefer the human curvature something a bit more chunky like a good woman,something you can feel in your hand!! No fun with the bone in the Arc too skinny
Phone?? What phone??

What do you guys think is an realistic thickness of the new ST15i / Smultron / mini 2? 14 mm maybe?
Do you think Se will launch any other new devices this year with good specs in the medium size category?
