I know. I know. I'm a tease. I have been taunting you with talk of Samsung's Armani phone for months now. First we heard about it and guessed what it might look like. Then a picture of what may or may not be the "real thing" popped up on the internet, and despite not knowing if the pic was real, we were pleased it looks a lot like we predicted. I finally have some more legitimate news. This week Engadget featured a gallery of pictures of the phone's design and reported it will feature a 3 megapixel camera, 2.6-inch 262K color QVGA touchscreen LCD, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support, microSD expansion, full Internet browser, and support for H.263, AAC/MP3/WMA audio and MPEG-4 video.
The phone has an additional feature, which could possibly be the most unique cell phone function ever. What is it?
According to Daily Mail, the Samsung Armani phone will have an in-built "rape alarm" function that can be activated from inside your pocket or purse.
Described as a 'ground-breaking' achievement, the new phone automatically sends an SOS text message to five pre-programmed family or friend phone numbers, alerting them to danger. Intended for use by anyone being followed suspiciously or finding themselves in any physical danger - but unwilling to provoke attack by getting out their mobile - it is designed to prevent an attack.
What do you think? Would you buy the designer phone (it's priced around $760) for its design and added features?
