Introducing the Meridiist, a TAG Heuer-made, Lamborghini-inspired mobile phone. Why is it so big?

Luxury Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has officially introduced the Meridiist Automobili Lamborghini mobie phone.  Inspired by the Murcielago LP 640, the phone will be limited to 1963 units, meant to honor the year of Lamborghini's creation.

Although it is meant to look sleek, the phone looks somewhat clunky and thick.  This chunky design could be the result of the acoustics chamber, or the entire phone's housing.  It has a case made from black titanium carbide, which was then coated in stainless steel.  Although this is a digital world, the phone is actually made of 400 mechanical components, reflective of TAG Heuer's timepieces.

The display is made from "60.5 carats scratch-resistant sapphire crystal." It also has a battery capable of seven hours talk time, or nearly a full month on standby.  The phone is now available at select TAG and Lamborghini retailers.
