Samsung and Bang Olufsen present Serenata
this might have tiffany a great sound quality but it might really suck as a phone! you just cant get your basics wrong in order to make something different and exclusive! when will these luxury brands get this simple point! infact none of the luxury phones available in the market makes any sense including the Vertu!
the iphone rocks because its first an amazing phone and then and amazing music player! and as far as i know, it will be really hard to beat the music quality of iphone as they are almost as good as it can be. so in that area too i doubt that this Bang Olufsen phone might top the sound quality of iphones!
as I myself am a musician and i believe i have good musical ears and as far as i know. apple mp3 players are the best that there is. nothing can beat them. and they use the same technology for their iphones so they tiffany are unbeatable music phones!
hope guys at B get this and make a great phone first and then add their already proven music capabilities to it. and that way make a true hard to beat exclusive luxury music phone!
The more I think about this B Serenata the more I see it is a perfect example of ‘luxury branding'; used to sell an overpriced object to those who consider themselves ‘classy, elegant and worthy of exclusive products’.
The phone will probabl tiffany y be constructed with about $150 worth of components, and labour, by some overworked and underpaid person in China. And, yet I’m sure Samsung and B will mark it up at least 10 times and sell it for $1500+.
All luxury brand manufacturers do tiffany the same thing now. For example, most Louis Vuitton bags are made for about $100 in Chinese factories. (Yeah, I know it says made in Paris on them, but they only finish them up there my wife works in the fashion industry. Therefore, I know the facts about these products.) And, yet LV will charge $1500+ for them, making an enormous profit.
