After paying tribute to Piet Mondrian and Vincent Van Gogh, luxury phone manufacturer Mobiado has turned its attention to Austrian painter Gustav Klimt, a key representative of the Art Nouveau movement in Vienna. The brand's new gold-plated smartphone is available now in a limited edition.

The smartphone's brass casing is plated in 24K gold, calling to mind the dominant hue in many of Klimt's paintings. But the most surprising feature is found underneath the case: the inside of the battery cover features a miniature reproduction of Klimt's famous "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I."

Underneath its arty and luxurious appearance, the Professional 3 DC smartphone actually has very limited technical specs. The double-SIM, 3G-ready device has a 2.4-inch screen (320x240 pixels), two cameras and a micro SD slot.

Mobiado has not announced the price of the model nor the number of phones to be produced in this limited series.
