Swiss Watch Maker Ulysse Nardin To Launch Luxury Android Handset

Looking to blow some cash? Here’s a thought.  Swiss watch maker, Ulysse Nardin has partnered with SCI Innovations to craft and sell a luxury Android handset.  That’s right, a luxury Android handset!

According to the Ulysse Nardin website, the handset will be named the “Ulysse Nardin Chairman” and feature a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a fingerprint reader, 8-megapixel camera and 32GB flash drive. It will support playback of HD video and come pre-loaded with applications for YouTube, Google Maps, Gmail, Google talk and Facebook.

Additionally, the smartphone will be equipped with a Ulysse Nardin Rotor kinTetic power system and Crown (for winding the phone), which is designed to recharge additional electrical power for the battery. With this, the battery will provide up to 8 hours talk time and 30 days standby time. That’s pretty damn impressive if you ask me.

No word yet on when this phone will be released, but the phone will cost between $12,800 and $49,500.  As always, the price goes up as the options go up. So, who is interested?
