I'm assuming you saw this phone when it was first listed in this topic, with all of the pictures from eBay, to create a record, to fully document the results of what one may seriously consider as criminal behavior?

It looks like a painter threw up on it! :o I wonder what color it originally was...

And now it's on sale at $10.65! What a deal for an original art-deco conversation piece! Won't last long at that price!  ::)

People think that looks good?? They look like someone drank a few colourful cocktails and vomited over their phone, so mush messy colour that just looks ugly!! :o

Have you seen the prices? Over 100 euro for this one.

It seems to me that more people may be interested in making these than there are actually wanting to buy one.

Couldn't decide which one of those phones to use as the prime exhibit of that insanity from this "artist" so put the collage below of his/her/their work at the -> CRPF Hideous Phones <- library.
