We weren't impressed at all with the Samsung Armani Night Effect as it was a bit too cheesy for our taste with its multi-colored lighting scheme and excessive Armani branding. However, this latest news that Samsung will be releasing an Armani phone loaded with Windows Mobile 6.5 later this year has definitely got our attention.

Samsung Taiwan mobile marketing department director Ryu Jae-hyun revealed this in an interview with Taipei Times. A new Samsung Armani phone is indeed in the works and it will feature Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system that’s been updated to be more competitive in the touchscreen phone era.

Apart from that, we haven’t got the slightest clue as to what this new Armani phone will pack. Nevertheless, considering that Windows Mobile 6.5 is highly centered on its new touch interface, this new Samsung Armani phone will most likely be a full touchscreen device.

That's it for now, folks, but stayed tuned as we'll be keeping tabs on the latest developments on this one and other announcements regarding the all-new and improved Windows Mobile 6.5 OS.
