How do I make different layouts for different product pages.

I have a site which sells different kinds of products and each type of product must have a different page layout.

For example:

My site sells mobile phones and accessories,
the product page for mobiles must different than that of accessories.
How can I achieve this?

You create different blocks for your products under cms / block management.... you’ll see electronic landing...etc..you just create your own page landing

@adityak- You can do this in the admin. Go to the specific category in your store, then go to the ‘Custom Design’ tab. Here you can assign your own layout in ‘Custom Layout Update’.
