Diva: Samsung touts tarted up telephones for WAGs

Handbag handsets

Samsung's Diva phones, due to strut their stuff over here later this month, are apparently aimed at "fashionable women", the company said today.

Kass act: leggy blonde in fashion-phone promo shock

Ringtone not clue enough, you think? Well, this phone has an "etiquette mode" that "enables consumers to instantaneously silence the mobile at necessary moments".

Couple that with a "wish list" feature that "helps the user streamline her shopping", and you have the ideal pair of phones for any Oligarch's WAG.

And should self-confidence fail, a snap from the S7070's 32.Mp and a blast of the built in "Beauty Effect" filter will put it right.

Samsung didn't say how much the S5150 and S7070 will cost. But if you have to ask... ®
