Samsung Giorgio Armani SPH-W8200 struts its stuff

Samsung and Giorgio Armani are no strangers, and the partnership is back again this year with a second touchscreen handset bearing the designer's brand.  The Samsung Giorgio Armani SPH-W8200 gets a 3.1-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen and a slide-out keypad, together with a 5-megapixel camera for snapping catwalk shots.

There's also HSDPA and Bluetooth, together with a DMB TV tuner for use in Korea, and a microSD card slot (happy with up to 16GB cards) for local media.  The whole thing measures 100.9 x 57.7 x 15.1 mm and weighs 132g.

Unfortunately there's no 3.5mm headphones socket, and the W8200 looks to use Samsung's proprietary connector rather than the far-preferable mini- or micro-USB.  No word on launch date or availability, either, though we're guessing this will carry a luxury price tag to go along with its luxury branding.
