Sony Ericsson describe the Jalou's shape as a "facet cut jewel form" and although the look is reminiscent of the Nokia 7070 Prism, the Jalou is a much more sophisticated handset.

Attention! Fashion phone on the catwalk. Please step aside and make room for the latest model - Jalou from Sony Ericsson. Does it WOW you?

Sony Ericsson Jalou F100i

 

This tiny fashion phone could be the perfect accompaniment to your designer handbag.

Open the phone up, however, and things take a turn for the worse. In particular, the keyboard looks decidedly tacky and in terms of performance has few merits. The single piece of malleable plastic that makes up the surface of all the keys is wobbly...

For some reason, the control pad is hexagonal, so it's quite difficult to press the direction that you're actually after.

For lovers of jewels or jewel-shaped electronics, the Sony Ericsson Jalou is going to gallop into your heart like a Rhinestone Cowboy.

But the most exciting part of Sony Ericsson's announcement is that the Jalou will also be released sporting the Dolce & Gabbana brand and dripping in gold. The limited edition will come in a Sparkling Rose colour with a 24-carat plated chassis plus D&G...

Fully loaded fashion phone with good social networking features.

It's really hard to open, bizarrely, and it occasionally lags and even freezes
