If you are that kind of Vertu customer but you are looking for something Windows Mobile powered, Gresso's new collection called "Avantgarde" might be something interesting for you. Made of Gold and African Blackwood, the case of the Gresso Avantgarde smartphones is hand crafted and fastened with Gold screws.
The name of the new Gresso "Avantgarde" is derived from the French "avant-garde", which means "to be ahead of the time".

This collection is an excellent illustration of the Gresso values: a quest to always push the limits further in pursuit of excellence, as well as the necessity to apply the latest technology. It is this blend with innovative technologies, rare materials and exclusive design that makes Gresso Avantgarde truly unique:

Gresso Avantgarde is powered by Windows Mobile 6 Standard. It provides quick and easy access to the most frequently used applications. The QVGA TFT display of the phone supports up to 65 K colors; furthermore both smartphones includes a 2 megapixel camera. The mobile phone has all the functions that today's mobile phone consumers demand. It supports Outlook, Pocket MSN, SMS/EMS/MMS, Bluetooth, synchronization with the PC.

All these are completed with ultra slim design, made from African Blackwood which is only 14 mm thick.

The Avantgarde collection is made of African Blackwood, which age is more than 200 years. Two identical phones do not exist, as well as in the nature there are no two identical trees. A special feature is the keyboard with
Roman numerals. This is another innovation by Gresso. No phone had ever been designed this way.
Figures and letters of the keyboard are cut out by laser. Moreover, the keyboard has special, scratch-resistant titanic covering that has been developed and patented by Gresso.

The back cover of the phone is executed of stainless steel with a titanic covering and hand polished to a mirror shine. This covering offers protection against scratches and is very durable.

Another feature is the magnetic lock of the battery cover. This constitutes a double advantage, at once both an improvement in the reliability of fastening and in its ease of use. The back panel of the device is decorated with Gresso logo made of Gold.

The Avantgarde Collection will come in two models: Luna and Sol.

Gresso Avantgarde Luna:

  • Flat keyboard
  • Navigation key is executed of Gold
  • The front panel is embellished by a triangle inset of Gold – one of the special aspects of all Gresso mobile phones

Price of the Gresso Avantgarde Luna: 5000 Euro!

Gresso Avantgarde Sol:

  • Every function key is made of Gold using ultra-precision turning technology. This technology, unique for the jewellery industry, ensures a superlative degree of precision of each detail
  • A triangle inset of Gold on the front panel

Price of Gresso Avantgarde Sol: 7000 Euro.

According to Gresso, the Avantgarde collection will be launched in the fourth quarter 2007.
