Mobiado slims down latest luxury handset

It's 10.6 millimeters thick.

It's kind of disappointing that Mobiado has resorted to the old "world's thinnest" ploy, because this handset maker has a lot more things to trumpet than its waistline. From the time we first saw its " Luminoso " model to the " Professional Camo " edition earlier this month, we've always been intrigued by its unique designs--not an easy feat in an industry when everyone is trying just about anything to get noticed.

Regardless of whether it's really "the world's thinnest luxury phone" at 10.6 millimeters thick, the 105 ZAF 3G handset is clearly less bulky than its predecessors, though it's also worth mentioning for other reasons. Made from aircraft aluminum--a Mobiado trademark--the phone features large panels of sapphire crystal, an anodized finish, and a specially toughened ceramic surface. The specs include a 2-megapixel camera, 1GB of built-in memory, and an MP3 player. And, of course, you get that excellent medieval-looking logo.
