Rumor has it that Bang and Olufsen is teaming up with Samsung to create a few cute phones. This concept of melding the old world and the new isn't huge news—Nokia has already teamed with Carl Zeiss, for example—but to think that Samsung, of all the companies out there, needs design advice is a little hard to believe.

I would say that this benefits B&O a bit more than it does Samsung although we can surely expect slablike phones in the future courtesy of B&O's teutonic design labs.
