Samsung and Armani just announced the deal that everyone knew about: Armani will design phones that Samsung will produce. The fruit of their collaboration is called “Armani-Samsung luxury mobile phone”. The phone will be available at Giorgio Armani and phone stores in 2008.
Both parties expect it to “quickly achieve an iconic status.” Well, that’s easier said than done, but the phone is cute and small and could attract customers who need a simple and stylish device. The unannounced pricing could be problematic, however. (specs in the full post)
That’s not it, Samsung and Armani will also release an LCD TV in January. Expect us to report about it soon.
