Mobiado teams up with Aston Martin to release luxury cellphone – Grand Touch Aston Martin
Merging state-of-the-art technologies with the tradition of phonemaking innovation
High-end car maker Aston Martin released the second mobile phone in partnership with luxury mobile maker Mobiado. The Grand Touch Aston Martin body is precision CNC machined from solid aircraft aluminium and anodized to produce an elegant hard surface for demanding everyday use. The gold version is CNC machined from solid brass and plated with yellow or rose gold. The surfaces of the bodies are created with curves to straight line edges, a process that can only be executed with the precision of CNC machining. Depending on the model, mother of pearl (MOP) or ebony wood is inset below the surface creating details of depth.
The battery cover is made from a single piece of sapphire crystal with a unique hidden sliding mechanism. The screws are gun metal black stainless steel and the buttons are black painted sapphire crystal. The Grand Touch Aston Martin is available in five engineering styles: Black with Black MOP, Black with Gold MOP, Silver with White MOP, Yellow Gold with Ebony Wood, and Rose Gold with Ebony Wood.
