ELLE GlamPhone

The first company that usually comes to mind when thinking of fashion phones in the US is Motorola; the company has undoubtedly been the champion of aesthetics for the past few years, focusing on minimalism at a time when competitors were obsessed with features alone. Whether due to the ripple effect or just a straightforward attempt to differentiate itself, Alcatel has decided to team up with ELLE Magazine to produce the GlamPhone, which directly targets those women who see their phone as equal tool and status symbol. The internal specifications are unremarkable at best; what makes this phone is its design. More information and photos after the jump.

The design is meant to be pretty without being ostentatious. The phone's most distinguishing feature, however, is a clever screen that can change to a mirror at a button press - which could be useful for both beauty and checking over your shoulder in a dangerous part of town. Available in Europe since late last year, the GlamPhone arrives in the US in either red or black. No pricing is available, though its specifications suggest that it should be very affordable.
