Luxury mobile phone maker Mobiado has just unveiled the Grand 350 Pioneer, the world’s first phone to “utilize the compelling beauty of meteorite.”

The company says that the Grand 350 Pioneer pays homage to NASA, more exactly, to the Pioneer 10 spacecraft that NASA launched back in 1972.

Pioneer 10 passed through the Solar System’s asteroid belt and is now on its way to Aldebaran (or Alpha Tauri) in the Taurus constellation.

What’s unique about the Mobiado Grand 350 Pioneer is that its battery cover is literally made out of materials from the Gibeon meteorite, discovered in Namibia in 1836.

The meteorite is believed to come from asteroid belts near Mars and Jupiter; its composition is 90% iron and 8%nickel, plus small traces of phosphorus and cobalt.

Features of the Mobiado 350 Pioneer include a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 2.36-inch 16 million colors LCD display, an integrated GPS, Bluetooth and a micro USB connectivity.

“The 350 Pioneer body is CNC machined from spacecraft aluminum, and clear anodized to produce an elegant hard surface for demanding everyday use.

The frame is then inlayed with sapphire crystal and the infrared window is made from a solid piece of ruby crystal.

The screws are gold plated stainless steel. The buttons of the 350 Pioneer are a dramatic combination of sapphire crystal and stainless steel.”

There will be only 37 Mobiado Grand 350 Pioneer phones, each having its limited edition number engraved on the right side, and the Pioneer 10’s date of launch (March 3, 1972) engraved on the left side.

The 350 Pioneer phone is priced at $5,600 plus taxes. Softpedia
