Rarely will you find a phone that sends you on a spiral, but this one does. You buy it for its style, look and innovation. For that, it gets an 11 on a scale of 10-point scale.

The dilemma arises when you must decide whether it's more important to have the most eye-catching cell phone available or if you want one that's easy to use. Rarely will you find a phone that sends you on a spiral, but this one does. The Prada phone is somewhat awkward. There are only three buttons in front, yet often you'll press the wrong one. There is a lock on the side, which you need so you don't accidentally find your phone working when you don't want it to. That, however, gets to be an annoyance very quickly.

So as I start to carry it, it will be interesting to see which function is more important: fashion or utility.
