Samsung’s new fashion handset

Samsung has unveiled a beautiful new handset targeted at the fashion conscious set, and it looks to be quite the impressive little beast, albeit slightly lacking in the “connectivity” department. Co-designed by Samsung and Jasper Morrison, the SGH-E590 is decked out with a 3.2 megapixel camera that includes a panorama shot function, 90 MB of onboard memory, an external flash slot, and more. Unfortunately the radio’s top out with Tri-Band EDGE. No 3G love here, folks. The cornerstone of the device is clearly the design, which is a smooth, black brushed metal affair. Aside from its visual similarity to Sony Ericsson’s design standards, it looks pretty darn good, which almost makes up for it’s slightly lackluster feature set. Almost, that is.
