The Motorola LúK is the latest and possibly last phone in the venerable RAZR line. Perhaps wanting to go out in some style, Motorola have decided to go for the coveted ‘monied fool with no discernible taste’ market.
The Motorola LúK is basically a standard (if reasonably specced) RAZR flip-phone that has been dipped in liquified Liberace. The gold-looking bits are, in fact, 18-carat gold plating, while Electronic Pulp describes the body of the Motorola LúK as being ‘white plated’, whatever that means.
The result is that the Motorola LúK looks as though someone took one of those old-fashioned enamel and metal phones that look like shower attachments and crammed it into a pocket-sized mobile.
The Motorola LúK comes with 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, video calling and USB 2.0 support for synching and charging. No price has been released (Motorola are aiming the LúK at Korea, we understand) but, hey, this is a gold phone that has been white plated. That sort of luxury does not come cheap.
