Samsung SGH E500 draped in leather

The change in material definitely turns a cold handset into something that is warm and more glamorous, accented by applied graphics on the leather.

After all, with all the beef Koreans consume, there should be more than enough leather left over to create a legion of these leather-enhanced SGH-E500s.
