Most of us aren't itching to pay over five grand for the privilege of putting TAG Heuer's first cellphone in our pockets -- or, rather, we simply don't have five grand to blow on such a lustworthy extravagance -- but the small handful of you still sitting there, tapping your fingers on the table with credit card outstretched are probably wondering where the hell you buy this thing. Turns out the Meridiist
isn't really "on sale" yet, per se, but at least the company has finally done us the favor of whipping up a site where we can all ogle the luxury candybar at our leisure -- and, more importantly, place a pre-order. The timing of the site is no coincidence; watch show Baselworld starts this week, and the company (along with manufacturer partner Modelabs
) wanted to be ready with some new action. It's not as cool as, say... a launch, but we suppose it's better than nothing.
It seems some retailers (even in the States) are stocking these, so we're not sure why TAG Heuer hasn't bothered to let site visitors know that their "pre-order" is more of an "actual order." Thanks, everyone!
