Sony Ericsson is the latest company to team up with a fashion designer to launch a mobile phone, with the launch of the Sony Ericsson Dolce & Gabbana Jalou Mobile Phone.

At just 73mm long – The phone which is targeted at women is shorter than a lipstick tube and designed to slip into the tiniest clutch or jacket pocket.

The Sony Ericsson Dolce & Gabbana Jalou Mobile Phone features a 3.2 megapixel camera, and the ability to record video as well as take photos.

On top of that it has a built in FM radio, MP3 player, Bluetooth, a pedometer, and even a Mirror key so you can check out how you look.

The “normal” version is expected in Q4 in Deep Amethyst, Aquamarine Blue and Onyx Black, while the 24k gold-plated D&G edition will ship in Sparkling Rose along with a matching Bluetooth headset and fanciful packaging.

No prices are mentioned for either, naturally. Engadget / phonesreview
