Levi's announces mobile phone
But is it pre-shrunk?
First Prada, now Levi's. The jeans maker is to launch a mobile phone, it said this week, but the doyenne of demin is remaining tight-lipped about many of the device's capabilites.
Levi's Phone: iPod white for the ladies...
Dubbed simply the Levi's Phone, the device will be manufactured under licence by the Paris-based ModeLabs. While a denim-covered version has yet to be announced, the steel-framed Levi's Phone will appear with "shiny silver" and "shiny sand" finishes for the ladies, and "metallic silver", black and "brown copper" for the lads.
...and a darker model for the gents
Levi's will also include a detachable chain on the phone, certainly a draw for the rockers, skaters or those a little too worried about pickpockets. Unfortunatly, Levi's only said that its phone will enable users - or, more specifically, "young people" - to "connect, enjoy music, and exchange images and videos whilst on the go".
Some online reports are suggesting that it will include Bluetooth and an MP3 player - not exactly out-of-blue guesses, we'd say.
The Levi's Phone will be available in Europe from September, but pricing details are yet to be released.
This phone looks identical to Samsung P300 model, so my guess it's just a make-up of it with Levis labels attached.
Nice model btw.
I can see this one tanking so badly, it will make a Challenger 2 look humble
They're encouraging people to put them in their back pockets.
Can they add an automatic key-lock when inserted thus?
I get enough silent calls and blank texts from friends' pockets and handbags when they forget to lock their phone without Levi encouraging them!
I'm thinking of changing my name to Zachariah.
