Samsung today announced a new phone for Korea that features an "optical joystick." This devices replaces the traditional D-pad or joystick with a sensor that watches the fingers movement, similar to the way an optical mouse watches the mouse's movement across a surface. Samsung claims the optical joystick frees users from the traditional 4-way navigation of the phone and makes the experience more like using a mouse on a computer. The V960 is also Samsung's first phone to include a light sensor to automatically adjust the screen brightness. It is an EV-DO capable handset with a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, MicroSD slot and GPS.
