Jil Sander Unveils Designer Windows Phone Mango Smartphone

Fashion designer Jil Sander has dished out a Windows Phone 7 smartphone, becoming yet another fashion house to offer mobile phones as fashion accessories.

According to The Telegraph, the device, which has been made by mobile phone maker LG, comes with the latest Windows Phone 7 Mango offering.

The device is sleek and elegant and is available for €300, a lot more affordable than the devices released by other fashion houses like Vertu, Dolce and Gabana and watch maker Tag Heuer.

The mobile "is a proposition of unique design, fusing the brand aesthetic values of modernity, purity and understated luxury with the latest technological innovations", the designer claims.

The Jil Sander Mobile measures 4.8 by 2.4 inches and is quite slim with 0.4 inch thickness. The device comes with a 3.8 inch touchscreen and runs on a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor. The smartphone comes with 16GB of storage and a 5MP camera capable of shooting high definition video.

This is also probably the first fashion inspired device that comes packed with functionality that is expected in a regular smartphone. It comes with support for DLNA media streaming technology, Bluetooth, USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi support.
