Leonardo's Red Carpet Cellphone

02/19/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

What will nominee Leonardo DiCaprio be carrying in his pocket Oscar night? His new Samsung Black Carbon phone to call his family to share the good news. The Blood Diamond star stopped by Kitson Men on Jan. 29th to pick up the slider phone which retails for $420. Chump change for the international star who can get cell service worldwide with this phone. Leo’s latest toy has a 3.0 megapixel camera to capture the evening’s highlights. And the sleek, black phone will go perfectly with Leo’s signature Armani tuxedo as he struts the red carpet. Can you hear me, now? The Samsung Black Carbon Phone will be sold at Kitson Men exclusively until February 28.

I am surprised that “Bob Barker’s Beauties” were not trailing behind Leonardo DeCaprio on the red carpet showing off this somewhat “the price is right” for celebs cellphone with their imfamous hand gestures and cheezy smiling!!

Did you know that there are cellphones out there that have inlayed rose wood and/or ebony wood and are studded with rubies and other jewels that have a shocking price tag of 1.2 million bucks….Can we say “I DON’T THINK SO!” or can this phone save my life too!????

Hey Zara,
That’s cool you have that phone! It’s rather a nice phone! And, the price isn’t that bad either, I mean, considering if you don’t mind spending that for a cellphone! I just find alittle extreme to pay 1.2million for a phone.

It’s just a funny way to promote a cellphone on the red carpet that’s all…I hop I did not offend you….and jealousy well, let’s just forget that word, okay!

Enjoy your phone! Cheers!!
