10 cool gadgets we can't wait to get our hands on

They're not available here... yet

The coolest gadgets almost always debut overseas. But we'll get them eventually, and we can't wait

Samsung's got Soul

Samsung 'Soul' SGH U900

Samsung's sleek new mobile phone is thin and rich: The 13mm-thick handset includes a 5Mp camera with 4x digital zoom, image stabilisation, and face detection, plus support for blazingly fast 7.2Mbps data connections.

But the real innovation here is the interface. This slider phone offers both a numeric keypad and a touch screen that vibrates when you press it; meanwhile, the Soul's Thematic user interface displays only the icons relevant to the task at hand.

You can actually get hold of a Samsung 'Soul' SGH U900 in the UK from this month, but it will cost you a mighty £399, which makes the iPhone look cheap!

Availability: Europe, starting this month
