Created by Andrew Zhilin, the author of the great BlackBerry L rotary phone, this new device shown below is a very elegant business phone. It combines BlackBerry technology and Rado tech. I wasn’t familiar with this brand, then I found out they make very elegant watches in Switzerland.

This luxurious BlackBerry smartphone has discrete metallic buttons and a segmented body. It uses top notch materials, like signature scratch resistant Rado Hi-Tech ceramic, titanium alloy and sapphire crystal coating. The handset runs BlackBerry 10.3 and it has what’s called a Phantom Keyboard, with keyboard symbols that appear only when the phone is awake and fade out when not in use.

The keys on the Rado Sintra phone are made of Corning Gorilla glass 4 with symbols treated underneath. Oleophobic coating makes sure that grease and smudges won’t be an issue. Just like the Vertu phones, this model comes with 24 hour worldwide assistance, through a special Concierge service. A cool extra feature is the “gull wings” design approach, that hides the microUSB port and SIM card slot in a seamless way.

Finally, dual speakers are included into the device’s body and operate with Hi Res audio. I’d choose this model over a Vertu any day!
