Vancouver, Canada – October 28 , 2010: Mobiado continues the tradition of the Professional 105
series with stunning hand forged Damascus steel. Damascus steel is a technique of hot-forging
steel, originally used in 1100 to 1700 AD to create sword blades renowned for their sharpness
and strength. Every 105 Damascus is different and unique, no two phones are alike.
The Externals: Exceptional design and hand crafted sophistication.
The 105 Damascus redefines the luxury mobile phone to create an engineering masterpiece.
Damascus steel is a beautiful material, whose grain patterns appear from repeatedly hammering
and folding of different types of steel upon itself. The phone frame is precision CNC machined
from Damascus steel, hand polished, and then etched to reveal the stunning Damascus steel
pattern. The entire front and back of the phone has been crafted from large pieces of sapphire
crystal, providing a modern minimalist look with a wear resistance second only to diamond. The
105 Damascus utilizes a unique and hidden sliding battery cover mechanism (patent pending)
with the battery cover being made entirely from one piece of sapphire crystal. The buttons and
screws are beautifully machined from stainless steel, and then glass-bead blasted to give matte
texture and look.
The Internals: Merging state-of-the-art technologies with the tradition of phonemaking
The 105 Damascus is unlocked, quad-band GSM/EGSM and dual-band WCDMA network
operational. It works within North America, Europe, Africa, Asia- Pacific, and South America
