Sony Ericsson does diamond design clamshell

z555a-300x225.jpgLondon Fashion Week may be over, but that doesn’t mean fashionable items need to cease production. The Sony Ericsson Z555a has been designed with fashionistas in mind, who are looking for a reasonably priced bit of style. The clamshell handset features a pretty diamond design with a reflective finish on the front. We’re not sure whether it doubles up as a handy make-up mirror, but anything is better than the scratched back of an iPod we’re currently using.

Specs-wise, it sports a 1.3 megapixel camera, FM radio and picture blogging software so you can upload pics online with speed and ease. The final finishing touch is a bit of a magical one. Rather than opening the phone each time to find out the name of your callers, their name will appear on the outside of the handset instead.

It comes in three unnecessarily named colours – dusted rose, diamond back and linear black (I hope these two blacks are justified). The fact that it’s got a diamond design, and isn’t diamond encrusted does a lot for its price tag. Get it here, unlocked, for £179.99.

    That’s not £179.99, it’s $179.99. Is it going to be available here at any point? I’d like my charger to work on our current, for instance.
