Before iPhone fever erupted in full force, one of the more talked-about handsets was Bang & Olufsen's " Serene "--albeit in mixed reviews , to say the least. The bloom may be off that rose, but its successor may inspire renewed buzz in just a few weeks.

The "Serenata," the product of a collaboration between B&O and Samsung, has begun a countdown on a mysterious Web site, which says it's 17 days away as of this writing. SlashPhone says the handset is believed to be the SGH-F310 leaked last month and pictured here. Among the rumored details are a video and music player, 4GB of memory and 1.8-megapixel camera.

Mystery or not, next to B&O's new " Beo 5 " remote, the Serenata looks downright tame.
