Sleekly designed with a gorgeous black-and-silver fashion/industrial look, the PRADA phone measures just 0.5-inches thin.
Turn the PRADA Phone over to take 400 x 240-pixel widescreen video or 2-megapixel still photos.
Amazingly small with a body that measures 3.9 x 2.1 x 0.5 inches, the PRADA Phone weighs just 3 ounces (50 percent less than the Apple iPhone). The candybar has an understated, Avante-Garde design that resembles a highly styled high-definition television. It features a piano-black casing on the back and on the front surrounding the screen, and its features are softened by gently rounded corners. The sides are accented by a polished silver metal.
You'll interact with the PRADA Phone primarily with your finger on the 3-inch (diagonal) touchscreen, which has a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and a display capability of 256K colors. The Flash-based user interface displays glowing icons that disappear when not in use to reveal a stark black Prada theme. However, the UI can be changed to one of three pre-loaded themes--the Butterfly and Fish themes actually place a small creature on the standby screen that can follow your finger around. The standby screen is also home to the clock, which is operated with finger taps and can be dragged around the screen. The PRADA Phone offers a virtual numeric keypad, instead of a virtual QWERTY keyboard, for dialing of numbers and writing text messages (with help from the integrated T9 predictive text entry technology). The main menu system is arranged like tabbed folder pages full of icons and is intuitive and quick to learn.
At just 3 ounces, the PRADA Phone is less than half the size of Apple's iPhone.
Unlike Apple's iPhone, the PRADA Phone does have a number of real off-screen buttons and controls. The call control and back keys are on the front of the device, a lock key and a multi-function camera/music key are on the right edge, and the ring profiles key, volume control, and charger/headset port are located on the left edge.
The 2-megapixel, auto-focus camera features a lens made by Germany's Schneider-Kreuznach, which is known for it's high level of optics quality. It tops out at a resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels, but also offers a range of resolution choices down to 320 x 240 pixels. It includes a self-timer, three quality modes, four color effects, white balance settings, a choice of shutter sounds, and a multishot mode. You can also shoot video clips with several resolution choices (including 400 x 240-pixel widescreen, matching the PRADA Phone's screen, and the more standard 176 x 144 QCIF).
The Bluetooth version 2.0 wireless connectivity includes profiles for communication headset, data transfer and the A2DP Bluetooth advanced audio profile, which enables you to stream audio to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. The integrated digital audio player offers support for a variety of formats (MP3, AAC, AAC+, WMA, RA), as does the video player (MPEG4, H.263, H.264). Your entertainment options are expanded even further with a built-in FM radio (which is used in tandem with the included headset attached, as it serves as the antenna).
While not fully considered a smartphone, the PRADA Phone comes equipped with document viewers offering compatibility with today's most widely recognized file formats, including text files, PDFs and Microsoft Office documents--Word (.doc), Excel (.xls), and PowerPoint (.ppt) files. It also includes a full range of personal information management (PIM) organizer applications (calendar, to do list, world clock, unit converter, and calculator). With its fast USB 2.0 connection, the unit can also be used as a mass storage device. The phone has an expansion slot for MicroSD memory cards, which currently provide a maximum capacity of 4 GB of storage (as of August 2007).
Other features include:
- Phonebook stores up to 1000 contact entries with up to four numbers, one e-mail address, and a memo field for each entry
- Call log records 40 dialed/received/missed calls
- Support for polyphonic and MP3-based ringtones (40 channels)

Yes, it is true the phone looks sleek and stylish, however user experience is as bad as it gets.
For one, the dialing responds to the heat of your fingers and not the actual touching so you can bang on it as long as you want but it would not work unless it is a worm finger LOL (yes ladies cut your nails and take your gloves off...). Sometime it really takes a while to dial a number and you have to repeatedly touch the number until the phone recognized what you are doing ..........
In addition to this, when dialing voicemail, while listening to the actual message very often the phone feels the heat from your ear and dials the nearest number (eg. 7 to delete the message before you are even done listening to it).
There seems to be a recurring issue with software when the screen freezes and you need to take out the battery and turn it back on to work.
Last but not least, after about 4-5 month of use the sound in my phone completely disappeared it's like it is on mute - except that it's not. Still rings but you can't have a conversation with anyone because you do not hear them and they cannot hear you.... I will try and see if I can get my money back although it might be a little too late.
My advise - avoid this phone. There are other phones out there - do your research and get one that works.
I bought the Prada and Happy I did perfect size, and soooo Light!
The screen is bright and clear, the pictures also come out wonderful as does the video camera Mode,Not having a bit of trouble at all, if you need to enter numbers for company's
, you just hit the profile button and up pops the dial pad, easy as pie!
In closing, I really love the Prada phone, it was the first touchscreen, and it works well.
I live in the sticks(on edge of a forest) and this phone gets much better reception then my iphone, same mobile company, same location.
I get 5 bars in most locations, and so far the battery has lasted a full 2 day with still have a charge left, very happy!
I also posted a picture comparing the two!
Can you tell I like this phone after using it for a month?!
I do. The only drawbacks to me are the very delicate scratchable screen and the need to continually touch the screen, whereas a RAZR or traditional cell usually has more dedicated buttons or you train yourself to know which buttons to push by tactile feel without having to look at the phone. OH and it is a little annoying that people ask you about the phone waaaay too much.
1. The ring volume is not that high so you might miss your call in a public place.
2. The battery is not that great, I have to charge it overnight every day.
3. The "buttons" on the screen are a bit slow, so you need to be patient especially when you deal with SMS messages.
As for me, I'm waiting for my wife to get me iPhone, once it is available:)
