It did fulfill one thing in the promise though. "EGO" surely describe the reason for person that is willing to pay 1800 US for such phone
Cheap Vertu knockoff. They didn't even bother to be slightly creative on the design of this thing.
what`s with that price? motorola aura and this wack phone won't be even the half of the 8800 arte series
you poor people...i pitty you...you have no taste of class at all...this phone is my dream phone.
the ugliest looking device ever made by samsung and that to supposedly high end. what a shame.
this is a vertu copy cat, again samsung ripping of nokia 5 years later !!!!
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2008... and by the way they could have put in more "samsung-design" than "vertu-design". unique ph... moreyea bro i looks exactly like a vertu, Samsung are so badly trya be No1... their throwin out every kinda phone there is... WinMo, Symbian, Cheap Linux or Flash Based Touch, Fashions phones and every phone is crap, excpt for the Omina and Inovate, even pixon is cheap, later homie
... and by the way they could have put in more "samsung-design" than "vertu-design". unique phones isnt samsungs business as it seems, just like first poster said...
So its not rhodium-plated as its been reported before? Anyways in my opinion the design could have been much better. Material used is exclusive..no doubt on that, features are good for a luxury model, however the design just doesn't go well with it's name "EGO". Just my thoughts. Cheers!
i dont know where samsung is heading. in 2 years i see it: low end mobile phone: "peter, q290384". middle segment: "berlin, fhu921". high end: "kamasutra, öä2303!". the bader the phones get, the uglyer they get, and the less memorizable the names get. maybe they dont want people to remember or to recognize their phones...
