Elle Number 3 Glamphone
Cellphone maker Alcatel and Elle magazine today revealed the Elle No. 3 ahead of Paris Fashion Week. Quickly following the No. 2 edition released last year, the third model drops the clamshell design for a slider with chrome trim and a RAZR-style metal keypad. The shape also helps slim the phone down to only 0.66 inches. Modernizing the phone is also key: a sharper 1.3-megapixel camera and a dedicated row of music control keys help the phone keep pace with other media-savvy devices. An iPod-like circular control pad also features prominently. Read through for more and a larger image.
The No. 3 model will officially debut in several colors, including green, purple, silver, and yellow. A European launch is slated first for June at an unknown price but should be accompanied by a US launch shortly afterwards. [via GadgetCandy]
