Art.Lebedev designs sexy less-is-more cell phone

We're big fans of the designers at Art.Lebedev studios. For their next trick, the creators of that hyper-ambitious keyboard with a video screen behind every key are trying their hands at a touchscreen cell phone. Its simple yet functional design pumps up the elegance but stays grounded with utility at the same time. We like it a lot.

It's tech-current, too, with support for WiMAX, Wi-Fi and all the latest cell phone protocols, and hey, unlike that first-gen T-Mobile G1 Android phone, it even has a headphone jack. It's also ready for video conferencing with video cameras on the front and back. Looks like fertile ground for that Google Android operating system.
