The new mobile phone from watchmaker Ulysse Nardin is quickly making the rounds from watch blogs to the tech blogs. It’s an interesting concept in mobile devices and those looking for a “hybrid” device, should explore this. From Time Zone news:
“Celebrated Swiss vanguard watchmaker Ulysse Nardin has partnered with the European firm, SCI Innovations, to create the world’s first hybrid smart phone: the Chairman. Inherently green, this smart phone pairs cutting-edge kinetic technology with the pedigree of the 163-year-old timepiece innovator. The Chairman will be launched at Baselworld 2009 at Ulysse Nardin’s booth. It will incorporate a Ulysse Nardin designed kinetic rotor system which is blended into the mechanical and aesthetical design of the smart phone. This smart-phone is hand-assembled under the strictest guidelines mandated by Ulysse Nardin.”
“The Chairman” is rumored to work on all mobile networks and will be shown at Baselworld.
