It looks fugly when shut, but slide open the W52S and all of a sudden it doesn't look so bad. What is bad, however, is that this phone is part of KDDI's Au project, a series of collaborations between cellphone manufacturers and designers, so don't expect the W52S to head over our way from its Japanese home anytime soon. The W52S comes In three colors, Arpeggio Blue, Pizzicato Pink (No! No! NO!) and dull old Silver - admit it, the electric blue is kinda whizz-bang fabulous, isn't it? It's out in Japan at the end of this month. Full specs after the jump, and there's a gallery for you to "Ooh" and "Aah" at right here.
