Sony Ericsson has teamed up with the masters of luxury and elegance Dolce&Gabbana to create the Jalou, the newest luxury phone that all the starlets will be clamoring for and regular Jills like me will long wistfully for. The Jalou is a limited edition affair, set to hit chosen markets sometime near the end of this year.
The 73 x 45 x 18.2 mm cell phone is smaller than your favorite tube of lipstick and definitely a looker. Done in an elegant clamshell, the exterior of the phone is facet cut to mimic the look of a jewel.And while there the regular Jalou will be available in gem-inspired colors like Deep Amethyst, Aquamarine Blue and Onyx Black, the D&G version is on available in Sparkling Rose. Even the packaging is ultra-lux. There will be three rose satin bags: one to carry the phone, another for the charger, and yet another one for any jewelery you might need to carry along.
The limited edition Jalou also comes with a Dolce & Gabbana headset with delicate gold accents to let you answer your calls with a bit of flair. And if that isn’t exclusive enough, the D&G edition comes with exclusive content preloaded onto the phone including photos and videos from the 2010 Autumn/Winter runway show, wallpaper and a RSS feed from the Dolce & Gabbana blog, keeping you plugged in to the latest news of the lifestyles of the perfectly coiffed and fabulous.
