Leave it to Bang & Olufsen to create Serene, a cellphone that turns the worlds of fashion and design upside down. This time the stylish B&O designers teamed up with Samsung to produce a cellphone that has the keypad on the top and the screen on the bottom. If you don't like it that way, though, you can flip the screen the other way for a more-conventional approach.

In the middle of that retro-looking keyboard there's a dial that lets you navigate through the menus. It also has a spring-loaded hinge that flips it open slowly, as if it were trying not to scare you. In the market full of me-too phones, Serene is a truly original design.
