Bang & Olufsen and Samsung have created a new high-end phone and MP3 player in one - The Serenata.
Even though the mobile and MP3 technology is pretty basic, the B&O trademark means that you can count on 3 things:
The interface looks very much like the one in the iPod (just upside down), but the showpiece is the pop-up speaker. It has a very high noise to signal ratio, built in amplifier and it uses an effect called "psychoacoustic" that tricks your brain into thinking it has a built in bass unit.
I have not heard it myself, but from the specs it makes other mobile phones sound like... well... one of those old clock-radios from the 80s.
And, for the full sound experience you can add a couple of high-end B&O speakers (who needs a stereo anymore?)
Price? it costs a staggering 1,030 EUR ($1,460).
