Samsung's latest phone 'could be a record-breaker'
13 March 2009 — 2:00 PM
Those looking to recycle used mobiles in favour of a more pocketable model are unlikely to be impressed by Samsung's latest creation.
In partnership with Cricket, a US-based network, the company has unveiled what it believes is the world's largest, fully-functioning mobile phone in Chicago's Pioneer Court.
The device is set to be verified by a representative from the Guinness World Records group and according to one spokesman for the organisation is a great achievement.
Adjudication executive Danny Girton said: "It is a tremendous accomplishment and we are delighted to welcome them into the Guinness World Records family."
Local visitors were invited to make phone calls and send text messages from the handset - which measures approximately 15 feet in length, 13 feet in height and three feet in depth.
For those looking from something a bit smaller, Samsung's current range includes the Omnia, Tocco and Memoir models.
