Samsung is not the only vendor Armani has decided to cooperate with to make an Armani phone this year.
It looks like they have persuaded Motorola to ditch their Dolche&Gabana phone partners and make the Armani branded Motorola phone as well.
Only, instead of making a new phone, Motorola is planing to put Georgio Armani label on it’s MOTO ZN5 cameraphone:
No details about this new handset have been announced and the exact terms are still being negotiated.
But we can be sure that Motorola ZN5 Armani phone will be a limited edition handset with the significant mark-up.
Well, my only wish is that this mark-up will be enough for them to finally add 3G connectivity to the darn thing.
Update: Eldar Murtazin, editor of the biggest russian mobile site mobile-review.com says in his LiveJournal blog that it’s a fake.
The phone was made by replacing ZN5′s screen glass with the glass from Samsung Armani 2 phone by the “reporters” on mobile.mail.ru (smape.com). And that’s the reason for the blurry shot when in charge mode and truncated shots in other cases.
Update 2: Yep. Definetely a fake. After Eldar’s expose’ and some angry calls to the authors of the fake article by company reps in Russia, the original article was removed from the Russian site.
