Mobiado outs 105 Damascus, the latest in its Professional 105 series
Luxury mobile phone maker Mobiado is back with yet another striking creation, the 105 Damascus. Carrying forth the tradition of the Professional 105 series with stunning hand forged Damascus steel, the new 105 Damascus phone has its entire front and back crafted from large pieces of sapphire crystal. Damascus steel is a technique of hot-forging steel, originally used in 1100 to 1700 AD to create sword blades famous for their sharpness and strength. The phone uses a patent-pending hidden sliding battery cover mechanism, with the battery cover made entirely from one piece of sapphire crystal. The buttons and screws come machined from stainless steel.
The tech specs include a 2-megapixel camera and video camera, more than 1 GB internal memory, 2-inch display with up to 16 million colors, Bluetooth, micro USB connectivity and a music player that supports AAC, eAAC+ and MP3 audio formats. The Mobiado 105 Damascus will set you back $4,180.
