The Sony Ericsson Jalou and the like remain a good option for people who have found themselves hard-pressed to come up with a decent present to please their beloved, better halves.

Saying the Jalou is nothing to do with Ja Rule might raise some brows. Actually the name of the handset comes from French and the word means “jealousy”. Apparently, the creators of the Jalou believe the handset will attract jealous looks from those around you. We are not sure about that, but we did spotted people looking daggers at us for blinding them with the mirror of the Sony Ericsson Jalou. Oh, it has a mirror? Well, we’ll get to that part later on. Let’s first see what’s in the box. Aside from the Sony Ericsson Jalou, of course, what you get is a wall charger, headphones and user guide. We are reviewing the ordinary model and not the Jalou by Dolce & Gabbana, so the boxed accessories are as mainstream as it gets (meaning a bit unsightly on the overall), plus there is no fashion pouch with the famous designer’s logo on it.

The first thing you'll notice about the Jalou, especially with its clamshell folded shut, is that it barely looks like a phone at all. It's roughly the size of a matchbox, although that comparison does little justice to the Jalou's jewel-like appearance. Sony Ericsson's design team has obviously worked hard to create a handset that's eye-catching and convenient at the same time, and the result is something of a success on both counts. The Jalou comes in metallic purple, black and blue versions, as well a rose and gold special edition, designed by Dolce & Gabbana, for dedicated followers of fashion.
Whether or not you like the Sony Ericsson Jalou's appearance is down to personal taste, and it's possible that a number of minor issues may rankle with some users. Nevertheless, from a purely practical point of view, the Jalou is an extremely convenient way of combining your phone, camera, music player and, of course, your compact mirror in a single, tiny device.
