Super shiny SLVR wannabe gets FCC OK

Coming by way of Korea (no less) is the Slim 11B phone, a super skinny candybar that appears to take its inspiration from the Motorola SLVR L7. It’s even got that metallic laser-etched keypad! The front fascia boasts a chrome-like mirror finish, but when you flip the handset over to its back, you’ll discover that ugly plain flat silver that so many entry-level phones seem to have.

It’s got a 260k color display, a camera with 1.3 megapixels (and video), an integrated media player with MPEG-4 video and MP3 audio support, microSD (TransFlash) expansion, USB connectivity, and a WAP browser, all in a package that measures just 11.3t (millimeters?) thick. Nothing that’ll really wow you, but for $169 what can you ask for.

The Slim 11B doesn’t have a service provider attached to it, but I can tell you two things: first, it just got FCC approved so it’s a-okay for the USA, even though it has been selling on eBay for the past month, and second, it’s GSM, so if it does get picked up, it’ll likely be an MNVO of T-Mobile or Cingular.
