Armani and Samsung have been working together since 2007, a partnership which has presumably been profitable enough to repeatedly renew the contract. It’s a nice looking phone — modeled by an even nicer looking Ben Hill — but we can’t imagine that Armani will really eke out much of a marketshare when they’re competing with the likes of Apple, RiM, and HTC.
Then there’s the price. according to Fashionising, the phone will retail for $900 — a price that, while steep, isn’t necessarily steep enough to make it a status item (like those silly Vertu phones you can buy in the Dubai airport.)
What do you think? Would you ever buy this phone?
