Samsung has officially announced its first metal phone in a very long time: the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Normally, Samsung goes all-out in the specs department and puts all the pieces in a plastic case - but the Galaxy Alpha is all about design over specs.

Or, as I like to call it, the Samsung Galaxy Oh Crap.

No SD expansion

Bummer, Samsung was the only brand name smartphone maker that was consistently offering SD expansion across their product line. Now they're starting to drop it. And I imagine the removable battery will also be, um, removed in future models. So we'll end up with a next gen $1000 phone that is 2mm thick and has a 100mA non-removable battery.
