Bang & Olufsen unveiled the Serene, the company’s first cell phone for the North American market. Manufactured in association with Samsung, the B&O Serene is an elegant phone with an unusual one-step thumb operation. Bluetooth connectivity is available, along with an email client and usual support for SMS/MMS. Packed with B&O’s signature sound quality, Serene may have the best speakers in town. Moreover, this elegant phone also features speech recognition and comes with a circular keypad (reminiscent of my Nokia 3650) and a big 2.1 inch display at 320×240 pixel resolution and 262k colors. It is also equipped with a very basic VGA camera. No word on pricing yet.
