China’s putting up a really strong show at this year’s summer Olympics, backed by the home crowd. I wonder if the same can be said of the Veva S60 luxury cell phone from Qiao Xing Universal Telephone, Inc. This handset targets “female professionals with its unique and luxury design and features.”
Through cooperation with Swarovski, each VEVA S60 is decorated with 129 Swarovski crystal mosaic and 18K gold coating. As thin as 9.4 millimeters, VEVA S60 also has long standby time.
In addition to the above, you get the mandatory Bluetooth support for hands-free conversations as well as handwriting recognition software – a must if you’re ever going to enter the China market. The Veva S60, despite it’s tag as a “luxury phone”, certainly doesn’t live up to the billing where price is concerned as it retails for a mere $290.
