Æsir a $61,000 phone to make calls and send text messagesby yogesh
Gone are the days when a phone was just to send text messages or make calls. But some people are trying to turn back time, that too with a touch of elegance. If you have people to manage your virtual life for you, then a communication device like the Æsir. Spotting a ‘stern Scandinavian design’, then named after the ‘Norse gods’ it has been described by the CEO of the company as, ‘an anti-smartphone’.
The phone took three years in the making, and offers ‘watch-grade material’ crafted by European craftsmen. The phone features custom created ring tones as well. You can get the regular model for £6,400($10,560), while a gold-plated variant comes at £37,000($61,000).
