Mobiado Pro 105 ZAF phone almost tasteful

As luxurious phones go, Mobiado's Professional 105 ZAF is surprisingly sleek and design-conscious. It resembles Sony-Ericsson models, right down to the dinky little metal buttons, but with a simpler, less radioactive look. It's 10.6mm thick and has a 2mp camera, Bluetooth, 1GB of RAM and standard-issue media playback options. But the creators couldn't resist framing it with at least some pointless bling: the front and back panels are made entirely of sapphire, as if it makes a difference!
ZAF comes in silver, black, "black satin," blue, gray or red, and it runs on both GSM and CDMA networks. They're also paranoid about fakes: the product page has instructions on how to authenticate your ZAF. Here's a hint, readers: if you pay $200 for it on eBay, it's fake.

    Sapphire does make a difference. It’s used for the crystals on watches because it’s very very hard and resists scratching better than almost any other clear substance. I’d like a phone with no scratches on it, but not at those prices.
