Luxury touch-screen phone from watch-maker

Since when did watches and phones get all incestuous with each other? In a reversal of the recent mobile phone trend for watches-in-phones, luxury watch-maker Ulysse Nardin are producing their very own touch-screen phone, hand-assembled to boot.

 

The candybar has a 2.8-inch touch-screen with large buttons for easy typing, a five-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi support and works on "most GSM networks".

 

According to Mobile Burn, the Chairman also features a winding rotor on its back, just like a watch, and fingerprint recognition to secure the device. It will be produced in limited quantities in a few colours for launch in fall 2009.

 

Presumably it'll also cost many a penny, but more to the tune of LG's £1,000 watch-phone, or Hyundai Mobile's £200 one?
