Oooh, it’s oh so pretty! Since we first laid eyes on it back in August we’ve gotten some additional details and images on Bang & Olufsen and Samsung’s latest love child creation called the Serenata, a music player/mobile phone that has the looks to get to the front of the line-up. It’s compatible with GSM 900, 1800, 1900 and WCDMA 2100 platforms, has 4GB of memory, handles WMA/MP3/AAC/WMA Lossless codecs, has a 240×240 2.26-inch color TFT LCD screen. You get about 3 hours of talktime from it or 280 hours in standby mode when used as a phone and as a music player up to 5 hours (when the speaker is used) or 13 hours (headset.)
The Serenata is fully compatible with MS Outlook so you can grab email, attachments and work to go (downloaded via Bluetooth of USB connection.) Don’t look for the keypad because there isn’t one; instead you input into the Serenata using its touch screen display and the operation wheel. Flicking back and forth between the phone and music modes is as easy as pressing one button. The speakers are what you would expect from a name like B&O with two transducers to deliver superior signal processing and something called ICEpower amplifiers to get the thump-thump to your eardrums. A pair of EarSet 3 earbuds is included with it. Pricing and availability are not yet known.
