Based on the popular Motorola i830 handset, the Pininfarina Limited Edition Motorola i833 mobile phone has a titanium-colored finish and a sleek shape inspired by the lines of a Ferrari car.

Pre-installed applications include a calculator, JAMDAT SPORTS NFL 2005, and ChessBuddy™ and ReversiBuddy™, both by Coffeebreak Media. Pre-installed ring tones include the songs “Gloria”, “Born to be Wild”, “Satisfaction”, “Start Me Up”, and the sound of a car engine starting. Exclusive wallpaper designs include pictures of Ferrari cars and images of open roads.

The Pininfarina Limited Edition Motorola i833 mobile phone is available at Bloomingdale's stores for a suggested retail price of $599, which includes an elegant wooden box, a leather carry case, and a sleek desktop holder/charger.
