This Steampunk Android phone costs $50K

Posted by Starr Keshet

This Android-powered Ulysse Nardin Chairman is Steampunk as hell and priced, well, a bit on the expensive side.

OK, screw that. Yeah, $50,000 is mad overpriced for an Android smartphone - or any phone for that matter.

This Steampunk Android phone costs $50KSeriously, I really don’t see rabid Android fanbois or Steampunk diehards splashing out that kind of cash, even if it is a fully functioning device.

Still, we can all certainly fantasize about what it would be like to own such a phone. 

And hey, a little eye candy every now and then is good for the soul, don’t you know?

So, here is what you can get for that hard-earned 50K:

  • 32GB of memory. 

  • 3.2-inch touchscreen.

  • Biometric fingerprint reader.

  • 8MP camera.
  • Ulysse Nardin mechanical watch rotor - creates kinetic energy, supplying supplemental power to the phone.
  • Professional polishing service (optional, an extra 5K per year).
     

There you have it, folks. Anyone tempted? C’mon, imagine carrying the phone to your next Steampunk, er, Victorian Futurists Ball!

Note:
Ulysse Nardin will be showcasing the Chairman at BaselWorld in Switzerland from March 24-31.
