Phone of gold, diamond from the desert

Dubai-based Touchmate comes out with luxury handset

Touchmate

Over-the-top phones are the province of no particular region, but this one is appropriate at least because it comes from a country that's immediately associated with luxury: the United Arab Emirates. Dubai-based Touchmate has created a mobile phone in gold or silver finish with a crown-jewel diamond from, of course, Swarovski .

Other than its casing, which features a floral pattern on the back, the "Diamond Cam Mobile" seems fairly ordinary with a 1.3-megapixel camera, color screen and 128MB of memory, according to Gearfuse. But Touchmate begs to differ, boasting that its TM-M800 handset is "the world's smallest mobile phone (1.2 inches by 3.5 inches) with built-in MP3, MP4, camera and diamond. ... Best for showoff in parties, looks different, image builder, unique gift for someone you love."

Now that's one hard-working marketing department.
