This slider cellphone has a shell of ivory, intricately carved with dragon designs. The ivory, harvested from Elephant, Mammoth(?) and camel teeth, taking three engravers over 3 months to make. Only six available, worldwide. The brightside: At over $20,000 dollars, the proceeds will go towards destroying baby seals using dynamite and AK-47s. Amazing the things you can buy in China.

This is total B.S. As if the ivory trade isn't bad enough; let's exploit it even more with technology. Frankly, whomever buys one of these, I'd like to cram this phone right up his or her arrogant ass! I shouldn't be surprised; China's all about exploitation ( then again what country doesn't exploit in this world )
