Ted Baker is the latest fashion brand to appear on mobile phones, with two Ted Baker mobiles from Samsung and HTC set to be sold at The Carphone Warehouse later this year, according to a report on Pocket-lint.

Samsung and Ted Baker are reportedly launching a branded version of the Samsung SGH-S760, a 2-megaxpixel 3G sliderphone with an MP3 player onboard. The Ted Baker Samsung is said to come in blue, coffee and rouge. And prototype pics suggest the phone may have a short-style button on the central navigation key.

Both Ted Baker-branded mobile phones are being lined up for a November release at The Carphone Warehouse, according to the reports. No details of pricing have yet been confirmed.
