If you’re a fan of a new breed of smartphone that’s more sassy, more conceptual and more unique, then here’s one you’ll definitely want to take a look at. Designer Patrick Loh has come up with a phone that’s advanced enough to achieve superior voice quality and flexibility, sleek enough to stand up to the toughest style credentials – and cheeky enough to change its identity at a simple touch or turn.

What sets this Gigaset smartphone apart?

We think the beauty of the Coeval L226 lies in its perfect balance between the conceptual and the practical. It interprets the term “hands-free” with endearing literalism. No more headsets or headphones for this phone’s user…just clip the handset onto your clothes and you’re good to go.

That’s not all though. Dock this phone or change its angle and you’ll find new functions just under the surface. Rest it on its side and it transforms into a loudspeaker. Place it in the equally stylish dock and it turns itself into a cool and accurate digital clock. If we didn’t know better, we’d say this phone is showing off just a bit…

Hmmm… what else shall we tell you?

There’s no doubt about it, the latest Gigaset offering isn’t just clever, it looks great as well. The touchscreen interface is simply structured to the point of achieving a futuristic feel, and the intuitive functions are designed for totally easy use.

With streamlined and well thought out functionality this phone certainly isn’t a gimmick – rather it’s a nicely thought out concept for those who look upon their phone as more than just a functional handset.
