Mobiado Professional 105 ZAF: What credit crunch?

Looking for a luxury phone made almost entirely out of sapphire crystals, to show off to your stupidly rich mates? You're in luck. Now, you couldn't lend us a few grand, could you?

There's nothing quite like a ridiculously priced phone to bray, "Look at me, I'm really rich, hahaha!" If you're one of the lucky few to have cash pouring out of your ears, eyes and even mouth, you may be interested in Mobiado's latest luxury offering, the Professional 105 ZAF -- catchy, eh?

Boasting more sapphire crystal than a minor royal's tiara, the Professional 105 ZAF is a very pocket-friendly 10.6mm thick. Its frame is made from aircraft-grade aluminium, which makes it as light as silk and as hard as your ex-Gurkha bodyguard. Other features include a 2-megapixel camera, 3G, 1GB of on-board memory and a screen that displays 16 million colours.

We're not sure we'd spend Zimbabwe's national debt on a phone that only comes with a 2-megapixel camera and doesn't even have Wi-Fi, but hey, who cares when you're loaded, right? Speaking of price, Bamford & Sons stocks older Mobiados and operates a strict no-price-tag policy. Safe to say, if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford it. -Andrew Lim
