if you have a mobile product embellished in the slightest amount of Swarovski Crystals, typically it will cost a bomb, but that’s not the case with the BLU Armor Smartphone with Swarovski Zirconia. BLU said that this sweet-looking Android-powered handset is aimed squarely at the fairer sex “with exquisite taste, sophistication and an amazing personality.” aesthetically, the BLU Armor features a pearly-white quilted back cover and on the front, a bunch of ergonomically designed Swarovski Zirconia adorns the Home button. together with the subtly curved glass touch panel and the chromed element, the BLU Armor does appear to be on the upmarket territory. however, it won’t cost you an arm or a leg to own: the BLU Armor Swarovski Zirconia Smartphone cost just $159 a pop. and mind you, that sticker is for a handset that’s totally unlocked.

other features include a dual-core 1GHz Cortex-A9 processor with PowerVR SGX 531 GPU, Android 4.0 ICS (sorry, folks no Jelly Bean as far as we know), a 4-inch WVGA IPS display with a gently curved glass touch panel, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB, a 5MP rear-facing camera with LED flash and a VGA item for the front, HD videoing at 30 fps, plus the usual host of sensory (accelerometer, proximity sensor and all). oh, did we mention that this is a dual SIM phone? yea. it is.
