Well i think your both wrong this handset is a Tocco F480 with a brand name people will buy into it because it has a quality brand name, Its not a cheap copy as it is an authentic phone. However i feel that as a phone distributer we wont sell too many as the Tocco has now been surpassed by the I900 Omnia.

First, there was Prada then Giorgio & Emporio. Now Boss. I wouldn't be surprise if Samsung would tie up with all the fashion brand in the market.

tri-band = FAIL
Hugo Boss = FAIL
Bluetooth headset = FAIL

just buy an INNOV8 or something, Samsung phones are pretty cheap and are way better than paying extra for a fashion brand

I personally think this a fantastic phone. It doesn't matter if it's a tad bit more expensive just because of the Hugo brand on it, it's just how it goes. People will pay for it.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a "fashion" branded phone. I can't justify the additonal cost just because it has some designer's name plastered all over it. However, I can see the appeal to some people.

i don wanna be negative but this phone is boring, yea like 3 years ago when having a full touch phone where the main feature was the all touch navigation - these type of phones were great, just got back from the market and held it in hand, size is great and specs are not bad and thats pretty much customization, no nothing inside.. for such a high price you can tons better phones which have a OS...all these flash based touch phones are all the same....from the LG Viewty to the Samsung F480 the same thing...

The target group are the rich ladies and not the geek or mass market people, so all this Hugo Armani version are just for show cause the girls only care about fashion and looks.

It's the retail package. F480 with hugo boss goodies. They have selected the right one IMO.

then there are people who have alot of money and doesn't care about the price.. and then there are people who want class phone to just make calls with and don't care about specs.. and there are people who are poor and and want all specs cramed into a 300 dollar phone.. only ugly people say that looks doesn't matter.. there are so many different kind of people..

I own Tocco. but u know,.. i guess many has realized how beautiful this phone look in real. i used to think that Giorgio Armani had a bad choice of design, it should be Tocco in the fashion line, Walla! Suddenly Hugo Boss realize the beauty of this phone. it sure does look better than Prada phone.
Mine is Olympic version of Tocco, gold in color. recently there was new Tocco named Behold (got GPS).
