$14,000 African Blackwood Cell Phones

Gresso White Diamonds Mobile

— June 9, 2008 — Tech
Gresso, a Russian phone maker, recently wowed the world with its luxurious new mobile phone models. The company just launched the White Diamonds Collection which includes two cell phones bejeweled with what we know as a girl's best friend: diamonds.

The mobile phones are made of titanium, sapphire crystal, African Blackwood and other high quality materials. The two phones in the White Diamonds Collection were given the names Gresso White Diamonds and Gresso Royal White Diamonds.

Design is clearly the attraction piece of these mobiles, since when it comes to the technological side, Gresso phones are not that exceptional. The lavish phones have a tri-band GSM support, a 65K color TFT display, a microSD memory card slot and a 2 megapixel camera with a run on Windows Mobile 6 Standard. Like I said, you might not drop your jaw for its technological traits, but you definitely will if you're into lavish design. The phones are embedded with hand-assembled body panels made of 200 year old African blackwood, keyboard having a base plate finished with titanium and stainless steel battery cover equipped with a magnetic lock with gold decoration. The best part comes with the phones' display designed with 42K sapphire crystal glass and 18K Gold for the keys. All in all, the keys are coated with 2.53K of white diamonds.

It is only reasonable to give it a price as high as $14,000.
