A 'Ferrari' phone you can play with

Mobile handset looks like a toy car.

Chip Chick

One can only imagine how much time and money went into the design and development of Ferrari's branded phones, whether it be a Razr offshoot or a vaunted Vertu . So it would be deliciously ironic if the best seller of all didn't come from a big-name handset maker at all--and resembled a toy .

The F1 really does look like one of the storied cars until it's turned over to reveal a 2.2-inch LCD touch screen, keypad, and Ferrari logo that probably wasn't officially sanctioned by its legendary namesake, according to Chip Chick. Then again, we wouldn't put it past Ferrari to do so--it is, after all, a company that has no qualms about putting its name and logo on everything from boomboxes to binoculars .
