One of our faithful readers has spotted a couple of ads for the Jil Sander edition LG E906 in Germany's Die Zeit. Die Zeit is a highly-respected weekly newspaper in Germany, which also includes a lifestyle magazine called ZEITmagazin. Typically, purveyors of chic, like Armani and Prada, grace the pages of ZEITmagazin, but this time its the Jil Sander E906 that is being flaunted in a full-page ad. The ad looks like a still from the video that appeared on the Jil Sander website back in October, and informs readers that they can pick one up at Media Markt (described to us as Germany's version of Best Buy).
The Jil Sander E906 is essentially a modified LG Optimus 7, sporting a 3.8-inch WVGA display and a 5-megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p. It comes bundled with a Jil Sander app, which allows users to browse clothing collections and more. The specs are nothing outstanding, but the handset itself, complete with hardware buttons, is as suave as the ads.
I wonder if it still has the tacky plastic feel and the plastic button click of the original Optimus 7.
