So, Armani has designed a $1,000 phone that runs on Windows Mobile 6.5. No, seriously, this is real. A $1,000 phone. Microsoft. Armani. How on earth did those three elements ever come together in a single newsletter entry? How much Armani does Steve Ballmer actually wear? Oh, he can afford it, but does Armani make those electric-blue, standard-issue, button-down Microsoft shirts that are the scourge of Microsoft conferences year after year? We're guessing that the answer is no.
Isn't paring Armani with Microsoft like pairing Sophia Lauren from the '60s with Anthony Michael Hall from the '80s? Uh, yeah. (Sorry for our outdated pop culture references) And isn't running Windows Mobile 6.5 on a $1,000 Armani phone like putting cheap-grade gas (or petrol, for our friends in the U.K.) in a half-million dollar Ferrari? We'll let that question just hang there, actually.
