The Motorola V3 is recognized as "where it all started," but in the candy bar world, the thinness obsession was actually started by Panasonic. In the Japanese domestic market, where function once outweighed everything else, Panasonic was the only company that was conscious about keeping everything as thin as possible. The company even introduced its first thin GSM candy bar, the X200 (12.9mm), before the RAZR, but it never became a hit. After the megapixel chase (up to 10 megapixels now in some markets), thinness has become the new game. We had the handsome looking Motorola SLVR, but Samsung has jumped into the limelight with the 6.9mm (0.27") thin SGH-X820 - and a whole Ultra series to back it up..
