The Samsung SGH-E900 was first shown at the CeBIT in Hannover earlier this year and it got quite a lot of attention – especially from the fashion and design oriented media. It?s a true beauty and I guess LG weren?t too happy to see this one only a few months before they introduced their Chocolate model.

Yeah, this is my kind of phone. Isn?t it absolutely stunning? The PENCK phone designed by Makoto Saito is one and a half years old, but it?s still the most beautful phone ever made.

The NEC N908 was shown by NEC in Hong Kong quite recently. It?s a good looking credit card sized that features a 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD card reader, music player etc. Nice one. It?ll be out on the Asian market any day. Even though I?ve only seen this one on this quite ugly picture you can see that this one looks really awesome.
