Cell phone dangles are now cool

The Simpsons phone now features a doughnut cell phone dangle.

Mmmm...donut
Doughnut cell phone dangle CNET Networks

I've never been one for cell phone dangles. If you're over the age of 15, I just don't see the point of putting some useless accoutrement on your phone. But after seeing this doughnut dangle on Samsung's Simpsons phone, I have to admit that dangles aren't all bad. Pictured here on the Samsung Sync Simpsons phone that we first saw at CES, this doughnut dangle (complete with a Homer-size bite) is one of the most unique cell phone accessories I've ever seen. It definitely completes the desired effect on a handset that is as yellow as the Simpsons clan themselves. We don't know much about availability, but we overheard Samsung reps saying it would run on Cingular's network. That's not a big surprise, particularly since the SGH-C417 was a Cingular phone, but we're not so confident it will be much more than a marketing gimmick for the upcoming Simpsons movie. The Samsung rep also said it won't be widely available to the general public. D'oh!
