It's Another "Styling" Phone
Prada is going wireless! The Italian fashion and accessories house has partnered with LG Electronics to develop an iconic mobile phone to be released in early 2007. Let's just hope it's not iconic like the Dolce and Gabbana RAZR... The first Prada telephone by LG will combine high-end technology with avant-garde design, for example, an advanced touch interface eliminates the conventional keypad. The initial launch is planned for distribution starting in Europe—first in Italy, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, followed by Asian locations such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore. So baisically good luck being one of the first! “As we do with ready-to-wear and accessories, we were looking at a break-through,” said Patrizio Bertelli, president & CEO of Prada. I suppose we shall see.
