Latest Armani mobile spied online

Brand's latest attempt to crack the phone market?

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Fashion labels Prada, Christian Dior, Emporio Armani and Chanel have each already lent their names to mobile phones. Now Armani looks set to try and make it second time lucky with another designer dialler.

Samsung's latest phone should appeal to brand junkies

Images of what’s rumoured to be a Samsung-manufactured, Giorgio Armani-branded handset have appeared online, revealing a slider phone with gold bezel and Braille-like gold back plate.

The phone – rumoured to be officially called the SPH-W8200 - also appears to have a gold ‘Home’ button.

Must-have branding aside, the phone sports a 3.1in touchscreen and 5Mp camera – which should come in handy for snapping a rival label’s designs as they’re paraded down the catwalk.

The handset’s 100 x 57 x 15mm measurements mean it’s a little wider than most catwalk models, but the on-board HSDPA support will surely appeal to well-connected fashionistas who need to remain, well, well-connected.

HSDPA connectivity and a 5Mp camera

Bluetooth is on-board and data is stored to Micro SD memory cards, while pictures hint at the presence of a user-facing camera – probably to give owners the option of making video calls.

A digital TV tuner is also rumoured to be included on the phone.

Samsung and Giorgio Armani haven’t confirmed the phone’s existence, so a potential launch date or price is unknown. ®
