A few months ago we turned you on to the fact that the Korea Herald claimed Samsung was teaming up with Armani to make a designer phone. The idea of a phone that could potentially join the Prada and Gucci phones on the chic meter got us so excited we even predicted what the phone might look like. When photos of the Armani device popped up online yesterday, we felt we had to gloat a little because our original mock up was pretty spot on. (The real Samsung/Armani phone is pictured on the left, our mock up is pictured at right.)
According to Pocket Lint, the Samsung Armani P520 phone is a triband GSM with EDGE handset, measures 88 x 54 x 8.9mm, boasts a 262k colour QVGA touchscreen, a 3-megapixel camera with video recording, microSD card slot, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It clearly doesn't have the token Armani branding we predicted (we weren't being completely serious about that anyway), but it is sleek, shiny and dare we say...iPhone inspired?
