Once again Giorgio Armani teams up with Samsung to release yet another phone. This time they present the Galaxy S Android operated phone.
“The Android-operated Galaxy S features a 5-megapixel camera, multimedia player, push e-mail and 16 gigabytes of memory. The phone will retail at around 700 euros, or about $965 at current exchange, and will be available in Giorgio Armani boutiques and leading mobile retailers in Italy, France, the U.K., Germany, Dubai, China, Hong Kong, Spain, Russia and the Netherlands starting from December.” Via WWD.
The branding is kept to a minimum and this might be in terms of functionality once of the very first interesting fashion phones. At the same time, the question arises, why one would pay the added Armani pricetag, with little to no added value in terms of functionality and design.
