Pininfarina has signed a deal with Motorla to design cellular phones for the company over the next three years. The design house, famous for penning Ferraris and Maseratis, will put ten designers on the job of making mobiles as sleek and sexy as their automotive counterparts. The design house had been dealing with the phonemaker via a short-term agreement under which it tendered two designs per month. Interestingly, cell phones design now makes up 30-percent of Pininfarina's non-automotive business, a medium in which the company only began working in two years ago.

      Good. Historically a lot of Motorola's phones have been ugly little pieces of... plastic. Less so in very recent times eg: with the RAZR, but there are still problems, eg: SLVR doesn't really show that much flair, except from the side. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice looking phone, but from the back and front, it could be any phone from any company.

      there is a direct competition with LG also with cell phones... related un this case with cars(though pininfarina is not going to create phones exactly about cars)

      The only thing that went wrong with technology today is that people seem to be crossed with what they are about to have. Mobile phones are constantly changing ,computers are evolving as well and to think even the food that we eat today are getting high end. http://www.cpr-franchise.com
