Gresso Introduces Cruiser Air Black, Charges $1700 For It

The recent exclusive luxury phone from Gresso might acquire some heads turning with its $1,700 price tag, but it definitely won’t be winning many fans with its specs sheet.

The Cruiser Air Black will be sporting a 2 inch, 240x320 pixel display capable of showing 256K colors, and 2MP capturing camera alongside 30Mega Bytes (MB) of onboard storage expandable via microSD slot (limited to 2 GB). The unit runs on Series S40, and works on a triple-band Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) network with class 32 General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and EDGE support.

No, we just checked the calendar too, and it’s not 2005 again.

So what makes the device worth $1,700? Each device is crafted from a single piece of aluminum alloy, claimed to be highly durable yet extremely lightweight. Furthermore, the metal is hand-polished by a craftsman for several hours after milling, at which point it is anodized for additional protection.

The steel keys (also hand-polished) are surrounded by glossy front and back glass panels, which are tempered at 800°С for extra durability.

Essentially, the Cruiser Air Black is a piece of jewelry, that doubles as a featurephone. Gresso has also been kind enough to ensure that it’s durable enough so if anyone makes fun of its meager specifications, you can club them to death with it.
