Samsung V920 World Phone

Moving or traveling abroad regularly causes significant problems for cellphone users. Cellphone service at a new destination may use a different network or give poor reception using the existing network. This problem is especially tangible for Koreans: as they regularly travel to Japan for business and vacations, many of their phones cease to function on the island nation's unique JCDMA networks. Samsung's new V920 phone address this exact problem as well as any other user who may need to change networks as they change areas. The thin slider design includes CDMA, GSM, and JCDMA radios, opening the possibility of connecting not just to Japanese or Korean networks but also those in Europe and the Americas. Samsung is offering the V920 first to Korean buyers for the equivalent of $522 US.
