LG-built Jil Sander phone launches

Not just another fashion handset, the Jil Sander phone is actually a Windows 7.5 Mango fashion phone.

For the uninitiated, Jil Sander is a high-end German designer, known for minimalist gear at hefty prices, although the designer has also done several collections for Uniqlo at a more modest price. Anyway, you probably don't care much about the fashion stuff - this is a mobile site, after all. But it's nice to have a reference point.

According to Pocket-lint, the phone has been built by LG very much in the designer's usual territory. No bling on this fashion phone. Which perhaps gives it a wider appeal. Although the designer's signature blue stripe is present, which is likely to get you knowing looks from any passing fashionistas.

Image aside, it's not a bad handset either, especially if you buy into the Windows platform. We're talking Windows 7.5 Mango for the OS, with a 1GHz processor also present, along with a 3.8-inch 800x480 display, a five-megapixel camera with an LED flash and 720p video capability, plus a 'premium wired headset' with blue earbuds and a leather pouch.

If you are into the clothes too, a bundled Jil Sander app is included, which allows you to do things like shop and locate stores as well as browse clothing collections. It's said to be available in the UK from today, although we're not exactly sure where. If you want one, do a trawl of all the usual online mobile stores and have the credit card handy. It's unlikely to be cheap.
