New Gresso has more gold, less wood

Chris Ziegler

We've yet to see a Gresso in the wild, but hot on the heels of its African Blackwood candybar, the upstart luxury phone manufacturer out of Russia is looking to make another splash with its 18 karat pink gold (and rather uncreatively-named, if we do say so ourselves) Gresso Gold. Like the Blackwood, the Gold is a member of Gresso's "Black Aura" series, suggesting that the guts are identical with a tri-band GSM radio (no 850) and sapphire crystal display -- though we suspect the Gold is decidedly less flammable. If everything goes according to the company's plans, look for both models to hit the streets next year. Look out, Vertu.

[Thanks, James]
