TAG Heuer phone announced
The rumors have been confirmed and the first TAG Heuer phone, called MERIDIIST, is now official. Currently, the information on the manufacturer’s site is pretty scarce, but a French tech blog reveals some more details.

The MERIDIIST will retail for the modest price of $5400 to $6200 (EUR 3400 to 3900) so obviously, it is another phone for the filthy rich. Logically, it emphasizes on fine artisanship, instead of on features. It is touted to be hand assembled from 430 components, just as the watches of the Swiss brand. Most of the construction is made of stainless steel (316L) and a sapphire crystal is used for the displays. We say displays, because besides the main 1.9” color unit, there is an additional OLED one on the top, acting as an independent timepiece (TAG Heuer is a watch-brand after all). The design of the keypad is interesting: the buttons are also made out of steel and have large number characters occupying most of their surface, accompanied by very small letters. Obviously, this and the 7 hours of talk time are a hint that the phone’s main idea is to be used for talking.

NO modern phone is worth $5500+. I don't think any phones in the future will cost this much either. Save your money.
