Vanity, Thy Name is Woman

I think everyone knows by now that the single most important thing to consider when creating products for women is the inclusion of the vanity mirror. I don't even care that air bags are designed for men, as long as there's a mirror so I can continually check the wave/frizz ratio of my hair. What if the paramedic cutting me out of my airbag is totally cute?
Actually, Boost Mobile hopes that their new i285 mirror phone will appeal to youths of both sexes so young metros shouldn't feel embarassed about using the i285 to touch up their man makeup.
If you want a mirror on your phone, you don't need the i285 or the ultra-femme Samsung T500, you can make your own. See, here's my Treo, after its girly makeover:

I don't remember exactly where I got those stick-on mirrors, but Strapya is a great online source for cell phone charms, keitai(phone straps), and mirrors, direct from Japan, where they really know how to dress up a phone. Strapya has tons of sticker mirrors for your phone. I also have my eye on the good luck charms and scented straps. There's even curry flavor. I want one of everything, that site makes me crazy. I'm placing an order today, would love to see pictures if anyone else orders something.
Hey, did you know that Shakespeare never wrote "Vanity, thy name is woman"? The line in Hamlet is actually "Frailty, thy name is woman". Thank goodness for those airbags.
