Newgen C800: Yet Another Powder Puff Phone

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

You'd think that after the relative failure of Siemens' Xelibri phones and the lackluster response to the Samsung Serene, phone manufacturers will give up trying to make a phone look like a powder box in a lame attempt to attract the ladies. But I guess not, because here's the Newgen C800, a UK debut that's taking full advantage of the powder puff pack form factor. It has a camera, speakers, and a horrific-looking doubled-up keypad, which might end up in way too many "wrong number" phonecalls. More for your fashionista adolescent than anything else, it's selling for 79.99 (pre-pay, special offer) via UK's Tesco Mobile, and probably won't be making its way stateside.
