Recently we mentioned that Levi’s, best known for jeans and denim jackets, was getting into the mobile phone business with a couple new hand sets. Today come more details about the phones themselves.
Levi’s says that their phone embraces mobile technology and enables young people to connect, enjoy music, images and video. Sounds just like every other cell phone on the planet to me.
The Levi’s look brings a riveted looking case to the phone and a detachable chain that can hold the phone to your pants like those biker style wallets. ”Technology is at the heart of today’s youth culture and mobile phones are the ultimate accessory. Adding a mobile phone to our collection is a natural progression for Levi's®, a brand that is driven to meet the desires of young people”, says You Nguyen, Senior Vice President of Levi's® Product.
The phone will be offered in metallic silver, black and brown copper. Editions aimed more at the ladies will be shiny silver and shiny sand. The phone is made under license from the ModelLabs Group and will be available in stores in Europe in September of 2007. No word on when it will come state side, or any specs other that what colors the thing will come in. Via Levi's
