Best of British design in tiny Samsung phone AND a beanbag!

Anyone in the market for a hype-free, yet simple and attractive mobile phone might want to take a quick look at Samsung’s latest designer phone, the SGH-E590, a super-lightweight beauty due out later this month.

The E590 might not be a cutting-edge media darling, but it’s certainly one of the best-equipped mini phones I’ve seen and the fact that it’s a Samsung guarantees a sturdy, usable interface.

Designed by British industrial designer Jasper Morrison, the simple candybar design belies some decent specs, including a 3.2-megapixel camera with auto focus, Bluetooth and an audio player that can handle MP3, WMA and the various varieties of AAC.

The tri-band GPRS/EDGE handset will be available worldwide (except the Americas for a change) later this month and comes in a special edition box bundled with a very classy little beanbag tripod.
