Cristian Dior phone is coming. For $3500-5000 and more a pop
Remember that Christian Dior Phone that was supposed to be announced last week, but wasn’t? Does it really exist?
Yes, it does. CD mobile launch was a bit delayed, but it should be officially announced soon.
It will be sold for $3500-$5000, or even more. Depending, probably, whether you want some real diamonds on your CD phone cover or will be satisfied with just Swarovski crystals instead
WSJ (subscription required) reports, that the phone will work worldwide, except Japan and Korea. That probably means that it’s GSM handset, and 3G capability is also likely. It will come equipped with a touchscreen, camera, specialist ringtones and, probably, custom graphics, wallpapers, etc;
And that remote you have seen in the first spy shot? It’s also there, and they call it “My Dior” mini phone. Although the claim is for it to be a separate phone, meant for “women who don’t want to rummage through their bags to find their phones”, my guess is that it’s actually not a separate phone, but a Bluetooth accessory.
“My Dior” clips to the outside of a bag for easier access, wirelessly couples to the main CD handset and can be used for making and accepting calls.
Cristian Dior phone is mainly targeted to the nouveau riches from Russia and China, and CD expects to sell 10 000 of them a year at first, with annual sales reaching $200 million eventually.
