Monocle X BlackBerry 9700 Limited Edition

I don’t know why but, to me, BlackBerry usually looks classier than the iPhone. Especially one from the project that BlackBerry teamed up with my favorite Monocle Magazine to launch a limited edition BlackBerry Bold 9700 that comes with pre-loaded 25/25 Travel Guide, a special leather strap and engraved number at the back. Only if the price is not £750, with only 100 phones available, sit would definitely be out of stock by now, as it’s been launched for more than 10 months. If you can afford one, order at shop@monocle.com – but I can’t. More details at shop.monocle.com/blackberry.

Papier Bag

This minimal-designed carry-all bag made from lightweight, water-resistant paper specially invented by DuPont has become my favorite at this moment. Still, I don’t know how to get the bag, or even how to put an online order. Sad.

First launched in March 2009. More info at www.stefan-diez.com/projects/papier.
