Produced in close conjunction with the tech-set brains at Microsoft and Samsung, Giorgio Armani's latest phone is this month set to take its place as the most elegant smartphone on the market - no hard task, we'll admit, but nonetheless, Giorgio Armani's latest hardwired addition is undoubtedly something special.

Designed by Mr Armani's own hand, the smartphone is just as concerned with its looks as it is about its microchip-clogged interior - an accolade we've struggled to afford most fashion-forward technologica.

Featuring Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5; a 3.5 inch, ultra-brilliant full touch screen and tilt-hinge QWERTY keyboard - the phone provides the ideal synthesis between Armani's understated style and Samsung's inimitable mobile technology

One of the first phones available with Microsoft's ground-breaking PC to phone technology, the Armani smartphone will feature seamless synchronization between every aspect of working life - whilst the 5 megapixel camera, mp3 and video plate and 8Gb of internal memory should ensure downtime is equally as productive.

Opening up the world of the mobile web to a whole host of unsuspecting fashionistas, the Armani smartphone is bound to test the loyalties of Apple aficionados around the world - our fingers are already twitching.
