Celsius X VI II LeDIX Furtif $300k mechanical smartphone detailed

It's always entertaining to glance upon that which you cannot possibly consider owning, especially when you're having a look at a mechanical smartphone watch combination that'll cost you a cool $300,000 USD. This is the LeDIX Furtif, a device made by the Celsius X VI II group, made for who Celsius co-founder Edouard Meylan says is "people who have everything."

Steampunk rotary smartphone combines grandma’s old phone with your touchscreen

When I was a kid I had an old-fashioned rotary phone in my room because it was shaped like an airplane. It was cool. After I outgrew that airplane phone with the rotary propeller, I never had another phone that didn’t use buttons.
