Fancy a mobile phone to go with your, um, Ferrari?
Motorola and four major wireless operators in Britain have joined Bono’s ‘Red’ campaign and are putting out this slim gadget: a red Slvr L7. It’s quad-band, features a (disappointing!) 0.3-megapixel camera, an expandable memory slot, Bluetooth, speakerphone and MP3 player (it’s got iTunes).
£10 of each sale goes directly to The Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in Africa. So far so good. But there’s more: every time you use your Red phone, 5 per cent of your normal call and text charges goes towards The Global Fund as well. Wicked.
( Fuck the phone, the haircut‘s what it’s all about. )
