Up Close With The Uber-Expensive Ulysse Nardin Chairman Phone
Last week I got the chance to play with the Ulysse Nardin Chairman, a goofy, expensive phone with a small, built-in mechanical rotor for manual winding. I interviewed the head of UN's cell division, Paul Williams, about his experience building the phone as well as his background at Nokia's Vertu line. The phone will run Android and will be available next year. If anything can be said of this phone it's that it is real, it is a serious piece of electronics, and yes, someone will probably buy one or one thousand.
