NEC has announced a thin clamshell phone in Asia that is 2 mm smaller than the RAZR. The L1 is only 11.9 mm thick and with it's thin black shell and loop antenna, looks like a cross between a black RAZR and a Sony Ericsson Z520. It is a tri-band (900/1800/1900) GSM/GPRS handset with a 1.3 MP camera and 32 MB of memory. To its credit, the RAZR packs additional features like Bluetooth in the extra few millimeters. The L1 features a 65k color 176x220 internal display and an external OLED display. Japanese manufacturers like Sanyo and NEC have been creating thin phones for Japan's 2G networks for quite some time, however this is the first they've brought to the world market since the RAZR rage began. Previously Sanyo sold a line of thin candybar phones on Sprint.

Smallest phone on the market I think is 1.3 mm thick... the size of a credit card. The RAZR isn't the smallest. However, they pack the biggest punch in the smallest space. Thats what makes them great.
Well, I guess I will be the first to say (and hopefully not lambasted) that having less features and therefore having a thinner phone does not make you better. I can take out all the string and leather, etc from a
o great, Thanks Rich/jk
