Ducati phone doesn't look like a winner

The motorcycle legend should be able to do better than this co-branded Sony Ericsson handset's design.


It may make some sense for Ducati to try its hand at co-branding a mobile phone the way car companies have, but it would have been well advised to wait for a better opportunity.

There's nothing wrong with the choice of Sony Ericsson's Z770 handset, but the customized design makes it look like something that would have come with a Hot Wheels set. It looks particularly amateurish next to high-end offerings from the likes of Porsche and Ferrari.

Maybe Ducati should have started out smaller, such as sticking with the branded DS-220 headset reported by Engadget. After all, even its USB flash drive looks better than this.
