Basically, Mobiado took the famous smartphone (Nokia E71) that can be bought for under $300 and adorned it with sapphire, stainless steel and mother-of-pearl to create a truly luxurious device, Grand 350PRL.


This handset is part of the Grand Line series of luxury phones made by Mobiado and it’s the first QWERTY phone under this brand. Mobiado 350PRL comes in white, black, pink and gold and it supports GSM/eGSM 850/900/1800/1900 connectivity, HSDPA and WiFi. There’s also a 2.36 inch display on board, GPS, a 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and USB.

The specs list is completed by a 2.5mm headset jack and we found out that the new Mobiado phone will retail for $2600, more than 8 times the value of a Nokia E71 unit.
