December 10th, 2013: In late 2004, Mobiado presented its first ever mobile phone named simply the Professional. The Professional became an immediate success and defined the hallmark features found today in every Mobiado device. In May 2008, Mobiado resumed the line with the release of the Professional 105 series, it was then as it remains now, the thinnest luxury phone ever made. The continuation of this heritage has now given rise to a new standard, the third phone in the Professional Line: the Professional 3 AF. A throwback to the very original Mobiado design but with a novel and refined look, the Professional 3 AF is the rebirth of an original. Endowed with a radical phone-making spirit and trademark shape, the Professional 3AF is the expression of mechanical perfection, enduring design, and the integrity of consistent craftsmanship.

AF Aluminum Frame: Carved from solid metal. With the Professional 3 AF, Mobiado takes a ‘no limits’ approach to phonemaking design even further; an aluminum, sapphire crystal, and stainless steel engineering art masterpiece that is raw and aggressive in appearance. The Professional 3AF proudly displays its unique vertically machined grooves as an ode to its engineering origins. The aluminum frame is created from aircraft aluminum to build a strong/stiff yet light body, it is polished or glass bead blasted, and then anodized to produce a rock hard ceramic coating for the toughest of uses. Large sapphire crystal plates are precision inset into the aluminum body. The buttons and screws are created from stainless steel. Available in 3 versions: Black, Black Satin, and Silver.
December 8th, 2014: Mobiado, the manufacture of precision luxury instruments - continues the tradition of luxury gold phones with the stunning masterpiece; the Professional 3 GCB. Immediately catching and holding ones gaze, the Professional 3 GCB pays tribute to horological traditions with a stunning contemporary interpretation of a time-honoured decorative skill.

This Professional 3 GCB pays hommage by highlighting the unmistakable decorative art of guilloché in a daring combination of traditional and modern craftsmanship.
June 7th, 2016: In Chinese art, dragons are depicted as long creatures with four legs. This magnificent animal symbolizes benevolent power, prosperity, as well as creative and divine strength. Mobiado celebrates this mythical beast with our engraving expertise by reproducing the fire dragon at play with a fire ball, creating a visibly stunning statement resulting in a true artistic sculpture. Every body of this exceptional phone has been painstakingly crafted from individual solid blocks and requires over 16,000 coordinates just for the engraving of the dragon across the surface of the phone.
December 6th, 2016: Mobiado is proud to announce the new all black version of the Great Empires: Russia series, a new phone embodying uniqueness, art & design, – and exclusivity. The piece joins the extended collection of the Professional 3 AF series and features a CNC machine engraved Russian Eagle, the coat of arms of the Russian Federation. This derives from the earlier Russian Empire coat of arms which was abolished with the Russian Revolution in 1917 and restored in 1993. The current coat of arms is derived directly from its mediaeval original, while the double-headed eagle has a history predating the Byzantine Empire, dating back long before the emergence of any Russian state. The golden ball and scepter in its claws represent the power of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Tsar.
December 15th, 2014: Exactly ten years ago to the date, Peter Bonac presented his vision of what a mobile phone could be. An iconic image was born.

November 5th, 2015: It would be fair to say that without the incredible vision from Mobiado designer Peter Bonac, luxury mobile phones would not be what they are today. It was within his search for extremes that the Luminoso Stealth model was first created in early 2008. This creation gave rise to some of the brand’s most famous DNA characteristics. Tradition now continues with the fourth collection in Mobiado’s military series, the Professional 3 ML.
In the early 20th century, Guido Panerai created some of the earliest luminous watches for use by the Italian navy, using radium bromide and zinc sulphide. Following this military tradition both the Professional 3 ML Stealth and Commando use a multi-layered Super-Luminova coating to create the first luminous mobile phone.
