Samsung / Bang & Olufsen’s “Serene” offers a 2.1-inch QVGA TFT-LCD display, 0.3-megapixel camera, and Bluetooth. All of these features are just a click away, using the unique thumb-operated navigation wheel. During normal operation, the screen is placed at the botton. When placed on a table, the screen reverses automatically at the touch of a button. Video after the jump. Here’s the bottom line:

The Bang & Olufsen Serene is a showpiece of a cell phone with a design unlike any other. Unfortunately, form does not meet function, and the Serene is more suited to be showcased in a museum rather than carried around in your pocket
