Looks like every designer wants to get out there and have its own super-expensive phone. This is nothing we haven't seen before and will probably see more of it in the future (Armani phone?).

Anyway, the features include a touch screen, music player with MP3, ACC, ACC+, WMA, RA support, video player with MPEG4, H.263, H.264 support, Macromedia Flash UI, 2 megapixel CMOS camera with Schneider-Kreuznach lens and LED Flash, Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0.

LG's Prada Phone (KE850) will be available in European Prada stores in late February and in Hong Kong in late March for a price of about 600 euros (~$776).

Man this phone is sweet than a mug. Now, you guys are making phones out of clothing lines.

Grand -- Just what I need... A phone I can't get in the US at a price I can't afford, with features I may not need, and a UI I know nothing about. On the other hand, check out Alltel's CellTop solution at http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/celltop/
Based on the video, it looks like it provides quick access to stuff I need on a phone I can buy at a price that suites my pocket

Expensive for a cell phone, but still cheaper than a PRADA handbag.
