Powder puff mobile
For some gagdet girls we know the Siemens Xelibri 6 is the most eagerly awaited mobile phone in years. Unashamedly taregeted at girly girls, and maybe a Scissors Sister or two, it finished in pink and is a deadringer for a powder compact.
Open it up and there are two mirrors (one with magnification) so you can slap on some lippy while catching up with friends. It even has a pink cleaning cloth. And to allow space for the smaller mirror the buttons are positioned vertically around the outside of the handset. This of course is a nightmare especially when sending texts.
Other than this, thanks to Siemens’ familiar technology, the 6 is very easy to use. It doesn’t however have the same build quality, and is made of a lightweight plastic, which feels like it could be easily broken. It is also quite uncomfortable to hold to the ear, and unless you hold the phone in exactly the right place you won't hear your caller.
Battery life, however, is impressive and the 6 has the usual polyphonic ring tones (twenty-three if you’re counting), which I discovered make great, gentle alarm calls, as well as a 4,000 colour screen - well, its pink and it displays a cocktail glass when not in use. What more could a girl want from a phone?

So when you accidentally flick mascara on to the mirror, what's the chances you'll then absent-mindedly take a call and end up with it all over your cheek? I can see multiple embarrassment possibilities with this. Also you can't apply makeup on the nightbus or you're asking to get your phone nicked.
