    There are lots of people with no sense of style who'd kill for a phone like that. I agree, it's absolutely vile!

    Well you know anyone who needs dual 8800GTX in SLI will need that phone.

    Too bad they'll only get about 12 minutes of battery life.

    Perfect for a Sci-Fi movie. Other than that, Alienware better abandon the project right now.

    Whoever designed that should be forced to grip it in their hand for 8 hours a day.

    That looks about as ugly as the windows themes they make. I can just imagine it being hard hollow plastic like a children's toy.. Looks like a piece of crap.

    i think most of the alienware products can be used to scare little children. :)

    So are they aiming for the corporate user, or just the blind user?

    The blind user can still feel it though. Maybe they're going for the blind handless person that uses a BT headset and voice dialing?

    BUT, it'll be £268.99, thus, making it cheaper than the iphone, in more ways than one :p

    It's clearly aimed at those people who have neon flashing lights and Transformers-inspired and over-designed computer cases.

    Do you (or anyone else) see the bottom of the image?

    It's a "what if concept" cooked up by some competent but not very talented designer for the phone company's blog.

    I feel like an idiot now, I was too caught up in how ugly it was to read the text at the bottom. :eek: Still, a very interesting concept though.

    Not to me, I have some respect. This thing screams "Dork!". Girls will shun you, your boss will think twice about that raise. Why not just go around shouting "Flavin!"?
