Sony Ericsson Jalou: Like, oh my God
Sony Ericsson is launching a phone that targets the terminally vain, with a mirror screen and a sparkly-warkly case. It comes in four colours, and it also makes calls or whatever
When we're standing around giggling with our friends about eyebrow shaping, we just can't wait to whip out our mobile and glamorise them right in the face. But for that, we need a phone that's so epically bling, it will burn your hands unless they're wrapped in Kate Moss for Topshop.
Sony Ericsson has obliged with its new phone, the Jalou -- that's right, ladies, you will feel so jaloux when you see it you will want to claw our eyes out and feast on them.
Most importantly, the Jalou comes in three colours and has a special edition designed by Dolce & Gabbana, which has 24-carat gold accents, a pair of gold-trimmed headphones, and comes in a pink satin bag that is not made out of kitten skin.
The screen has a mirror finish so we can check ourselves out oh-so-subtly, a built-in step counter so we can drive ourselves towards an unattainable physical ideal that can only be achieved with Photoshop, and a custom 'fashion interface' that updates us on our horoscope, so we can have something sufficiently vapid to discuss at all times.
It also does some phone stuff or like, whatever. These include a 3.2-megapixel camera that also shoots video -- with a mirror for self-portraits, we assume -- a music player and an FM radio.
The Jalou will be in shops this winter and comes in purple, blue, black or D&G pink.
