A phone for supermodels

It's fashionably square but seems kind of chunky for a model

If phones have become a staple of fashion accessories, then it stands to reason that they should have proper representation--as in a modeling agency.

Elite Model Look has taken care of that, signing French phone designer ModeLabs to create its "Elite EML 1" handset. Pricing and availability for non-models remain a mystery for now, but the marketing literature is classic: "It's glamorous, naturally into multimedia, and wears the trendiest colours. It gets with the rhythm of the music and grabs every moment in photo or video. My new Elite EML2--it's a whole 'Attitude'!"

As for the technical stuff (yawn), Gizmodiva says it has a camera that doesn't even have 1-megapixel resolution. That pretty much says it all. But its most notable feature is its fashionably square shape--and, after all, this is about appearances, isn't it?

What we can't understand, though, is its weight of around 2.6 ounces. Given that this is a phone for supermodels, isn't that a tad plump?
