Pininfarina, the design firm behind such gorgeous automobiles as Ferrari, Maserati (pictured above) and Alfa, in addition to that whacked-looking Olympic Torch, has now been signed up by Motorola for the next three years to design cellphones. Fact is, Motorola and Pininfarina had a short agreement a couple of years ago, and it seemed like suddenly there were some really nice-looking cellphone designs coming out of Motorola after that.
Pininfarina has assigned ten of its world-class designers to the project, and if that Maserati above is any indication, we re in for some spectacular cellphonage in the years to come. Can't wait.
