Sorry I missed this in the aftermath of CTIA, but Samsung on Friday announced the latest incarnation of its Armani-branded phone. This newest handset sports a QWERTY keybaord and a design that's vaguely reminiscent of the HTC Tilt 2. The exterior is attractive, particularly the bronze and brown color scheme.

Features on the Windows Mobile 6.5 phone include a 5-megapixel camera, e-mail and messaging, Bluetooth, a music player, a personal organizer, a speakerphone, voice dialing, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a video player, GPS, and an FM radio. The Armani is a quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) world phone that supports three UMTS (3G) bands.

Make no mistake that the Armani name will cost you. The handset is priced at 700 euros or $1,032.
