Marshall Announces a Smartphone ➝

Lynn La, writing for CNET:

If you’re an audiophile, the news of Marshall’s debut smartphone may be music to your ears. The audio and sound company, which specializes in making amplifiers, speakers and headphones launched a smartphone today called the London.

As Marshall’s first smartphone, the device emphasizes high-quality sound and sports a number of features that promise to boost a user’s listening experience.

The device doesn’t look completely ridiculous, especially compared to other Android devices on the market. But, I don’t understand who would actually buy this thing. I’d guess that most users who care about audio quality and love music are far more likely to just buy an iPhone than even consider the London.
