Potential
Elle Publications together with Alcatel have developed a glitzy new phone design that doubles as a beauty accessory, the screen converts into a mirror when not in use. The phone itself is divinely red or glinting black and definitely worthy of the title Fashion statement.

This shiny new branded Mobile tool comes with a matching headseat and a car charger as well as a designer silver letter 'E' dangling from a necklace carry strap. You will receive a one-year subscription to Elle on purchasing the phone.

Beauty hasn't compromised on usefulness and it seems to have all the features necessary such as a "powerful" camera, video recorder, 3mb internal memory capabilities,WAP, pc connections, unique elle screensavers, games, predictive text etc...

Anything Red does it for me and I really like the mirror feature as I am always losing my compact mirrors but I NEVER lose my phone.

It is a beautiful looking handset, mabye not in your opinion, but that is the point on which the phone should be judged as it follows the growing trend of adding bling and personal style to mobile assets.

It is also on Elles' part a great marketing idea for their feminine demographic publication.

Check out the Glam website the phone is sold on. Price is $179.99. . .
