Porsche and Sagem team up on handset design, doesn't vroom vroom


Sagem and Porsche's P'9521 handset is set to launch at retail as they announce the boxy thing will start selling in Taiwan this month for a whopping $1800. Featuring quad-band GSM / EDGE, measuring in at a portly 140 gram 91 x 48 x 18.4 mm, and packing a 3 megapixel camera, shows us that they got most of the internals right. But unfortunately, the unlikely design duo has also seen fit to include a fingerprint scanner to activate the camera which begs the question, why? Well, at least they've got ugly well covered, so there's comfort in knowing that the next -- if there is such a thing planned -- can only improve on this first effort.
