Mobiado is a company which doesn't have a lot of history behind it, but it likes to make history. And if that sentence didn't catch your attention, than maybe you should read ahead. The company believes in two things: quality (as opposed to quantity) and money. It manufactures business grade mobile phones for the wealthy executive who doesn't mind spending over $3000 on such a device.
Mobiadio's greatest work of art at the dawn of 2009 is the Professional 105GMT Gold Phone. As the name suggests, the device is made out of gold (not entirely, more like gold framing), but the thing is gold may be the least of the phone's qualities, and that's saying something.
[IMG=2]The company states this phone is the perfect blending of high precision luxury watches and the latest in phone technology (this one is a lie). The back of the phones is CNC machined from a solid block of sapphire crystal in order to provide one of the most durable surfaces ever. A hidden patent pending battery cover is used to cover the insides of the phone, while each side of the phone contains a CNC machined piece of ebony wood fixed in the golden frame by the use of black stainless steel screws.
The bottom of the phone integrates two high precision swiss watches which can be set to show different time zones, with a third time zone being displayed on the 2.0” LCD. Each watch mechanism uses 25 jeweled bearings and has a 28 hour battery reserve in case you don't charge your phone after the battery becomes depleted. The entire watch system is build using a proprietary Mobiado 3D shock system which is designed to ensure perfect precision even after experiencing gadget killing accidents.
Each watch uses diamonds to represent hours and integrates and M shaped diamond between the two watches. This diamond lights up when they keypad is lit to create a subtle effect. In total the 105GMT GOLD uses 274 carats of sapphire crystal.
[IMG=3]Technology wise of course the phone is a joke. It comes with a 2Mp camera, Bluetooth, quad band support and “more than 1GB of internal flash memory” (whatever “more than” means). It also has a shameful audio player with AAC, eAAC+ and (brace yourself) MP3 support. Where's WMA?
Price is not known yet, but you can bet on something beyond $3000USD.
