Partnering with the European firm, SCI Innovations, the celebrated Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin (one of the vanguards in the field) will be unveiling the world's first hybrid smart phone, the Chairman, at the upcoming Baselworld.
Inherently green, the phone pairs cutting-edge kinetic technology with the pedigree of the 163-year-old timepiece innovator. It incorporates a Ulysse Nardin-designed kinetic rotor system into the mechanical and aesthetic design of the gadget that will be hand-assembled under the strictest guidelines mandated by Ulysse Nardin. - Cool Hunting
I want this phone. And this is big for me because I'm not a huge fan of fancy phones. The one I currently have is old school Nokia sans camera. The back cover has a pyramid scratched on it and is held on by a label that says 'moshi moshi.' Though, this font finder/recommender application does make me want an iPhone. Anyone feeling generous?
