B&O Press Release (http://www.bang-olufsen.com/web2/press/)

Fantastic! If Apple won't build me a phone, then I'll have to settle for my second favorite company: B&O.

Sounds like they got something really special up their sleves:


The intention is to create a truly unique product, which breaks with conventional assumptions and expectations to offer users a new mobile experience.

It will probably be mighty expensive, but mighty great, and B&O have by far the best industrial designers in the world in terms of aesthetics in my humble opinion. Stepping into a B&O shop for me is like a Budhist monk stepping into his temple.

The best thing is that its focused on communications - I bought a fancy motorola about a year ago with a camera, games and all that jazz - so underwhelming and really quite useless, but it was hard to find a good looking phone that didnt come without the superfluous stuff.

But the time has finally come! I cannot wait to see this phone.

Now this one could be very interesting!!!!

Shame they joined up witih Samsung though..,
I'm sure though it is B&O it will HAVE to look good...

Mmmm didn't we think that might have occured when Apple and Motorola joined?
Sure I know it was a Moto phone... and they just wanted iTunes.

let's hope that B&O design the look, and maybe they just use Samsung for software / technology.

Mmm can you imagine a B&O GUI? cool!

thank you god ! i just posted about me wanting apple to make a phone with PDA fuctions, i think most mobile are fugly pieces of plastic that dont even work that well.

Any guesses of development and the release timeline?
Of will London possibly host their Olympics, and Apple finally release Aust iTMS and iPhoto book printing before we see a B&O / Samsung phone?
