Mobiado shows off CPT001 concept phone
If you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to industrial design in mobile phones, prepare to be wowed by Mobiado‘s latest concept phone, the Mobiado CPT001. This new phone concept, which the company also refers to as an “objet d’art”, blends modern-age communications technology with materials that were famously used during the renaissance period.
On the inside, it can be to contain what any other mobile phone might have. The stuff necessary for it to function as a mobile phone. But on the outside, it’s a different story. It’s a very, very different story.
Mobiado has put the sophistication and luxury that the CPT001 concept phone represents in words, saying:
Mobiado is consistently guided by a philosophy of doing things differently, and this principle has now given rise to the CPT001 concept phone. Staying on the cutting edge of design required the freedom to push the limits of what a luxury phone can be. The CPT001 is made from one piece of solid marble with gold filled engraved letters and details. The touch screen is made from a single large piece of sapphire. The buttons and watch crown are made from solid gold, with a magnificent gold skeleton mechanical watch movement placed between the Call and End buttons.
The company offers no clue as to when such a phone will come to the market. I can think of at least two things that will be sure, though: it will be quite heavy, as well as expensive.
