Lucky Dragon Cell Phone

  

The Lucky Dragon phone was inspired by elements of Chinese design traditionally believed to bring about financial abundance.

As a mobile phone, this one’s pretty standard. The interface is simple, but effective. The screen isn’t all that fantastic, given its 176 x 220 resolution, and the camera’s laggy. It has 6MB of built-in user memory, but that can be augmented thanks to its microSD card slot. Overall, we’d have to say it gets things done without hassle and should be sufficient for ordinary use.

It was designed by best-selling author Lillian Too who writes about Feng Shui and is also an avid follower of the ancient Chinese practice.

Other design elements of the Lillian Too Lucky Dragon phone include a lanyard with a number 8’ trinket (signifying wealth in Chinese),” CNet says. “The phone comes only in red, giving it a ‘fire element to ensure financial success.’ There aren’t any geomancy tools available in the software, but you can choose among 12 wallpapers that correspond with animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

The phone comes in red with a paste-on silver dragon in high relief with a red faux-diamond on the dragon’s eye. It’s crusted in 288 cubic zirconia gems for an intense sparkle. There is also a pearl near the dragon’s mouth and below that is Too’s seal with her name inscribed in Chinese and English.

Just looking at pictures of this mobile phone doesn’t quite prepare you to handle it for real. When we opened the box, it looked pretty standard. Screen, keypad and shortcut buttons, all in an unexciting candybar form factor. Though we know about the dragon at the back, turning it around still amused us in the office greatly.

That’s actually an understatement–we really burst out laughing. It doesn’t help that the startup tone when you first switch on the device, with clanging cymbals and an overly enthusiastic rhythm, gives you the feeling that you are in Chinatown during Chinese New Year.
