The Gresso Meridian is the luxury answer to the reborn Nokia 3310


The Nokia 3310 tribute that showed up this MWC is the grandest way of re-introducing the humble feature phone to the consciousness of a public that's bored with smartphones, stressed out by its hyper-connected life, and ready to gobble it up in a double-whammy of nostalgia and protest. Luxury phone and accessory maker Gresso chose just the right moment to present its Meridian collection, a lavish take on feature phones for wealthy customers who want to "disconnect, but also something that is ultra-luxury." More often than not, though, Gresso's feature phones double as secondary devices with the reliability afforded by their streamlined functionality and long battery life – not unlike regular feature phones outside the luxury realm.

The Meridian, however, has the strongest "swag" factor out of any feature phones. It's being sold in two styles – an "ultra-durable" Titanium body with a stainless steel keyboard, and a black PVD titanium body with an 18k yellow gold keyboard. The dual-SIM handset boasts a 375-hour standby time and a logo made of 18K yellow gold or titanium. Each model can take up to 18 hours to assemble and a limited edition of 999 units will be made. Connectivity-wise, the Gresso Meridian supports GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth 3.0, and Micro USB. Entering the feature phone party costs $3000.

What do you think? Does the Gresso Meridian tickle your fancy?
