Is the Philips 598 a Ladyphone? You Tell Us

Despite presumably being born from a female, gadget designers still haven't quite nailed down what it takes to make a cellphone "for women." This Philips 598, for example, is supposedly made for the ladies, but it's hard to say for sure.

Among its ladyfeatures, there's the diary and calendar (men don't need to keep track of the date and/or their personal thoughts), a shopping list (men don't need to buy things), a discount manager (men pay full price), body weight index (for the fatties), and basal metabolic rate measurement (same as above, chubby).

So is this really a women's phone? You tell us.
