Sachin, extremely good looking? How about killing animals to make smartphones? Is it necessary? -Susan

Re: Market share
@impactnow: Leather goods always look good and imparting that design philosophy to an already gorgeous smartphone is a winning move. Lets see if it comes into action even after battling hordes of PETA requests.

Re: A leather phone?
@Susan: Probably not but a leather phone like that is extremely good looking and will probably turn heads. I would choose a genuine leather handset because I like to be set apart from the crowd.

A leather phone?
I would not consider buying a leather phone in a million years. I can't find one good reason why someone would like to have a leather phone. Probably PETA doesn't like the idea either. I don't see a successful product there. -Susan

Market share
I am curious about why they are not reporting numbers of phones sold? This is important not only as a measure of their phone success but also to aftermarket providers of apps and accessories. It and interesting strategy but it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense from an overall market perspective.

 

A leather smartphone should be an interesting design turn--do you have to polish it? :)
