The Easy Tiles phone looks to be a standard S60 based cell except that auspicious exterior has be scratching my had. See, the entire shell is made of tiles - tiles you can customize and slide around for a one of a kind look. Replace and update them as often as you like.
The design is a little cheap looking but the concept is sound. I can imagine services like flickr offering custom printing services for these tiles.
