Guitar Amp Maker Marshall now sells a Smartphone

Guitar amp maker 200px-Marshall_logo.svg.png has introduced a "created-for-music" Smartphone which will be known as the "Marshall London." It will initially be released in "Scandinavia, the Baltic States, and the UK."

It may not be a very powerful phone, but it has a "very pretty design." The London looks just like a Marshall amp, complete with a back panel that looks like Marshall's traditional vinyl skin. The software is stock Android 5.0.2 Lollipop (a version behind Google's latest) with "custom music apps."

Ars Technica tells us that "Being Marshall-branded, sound is, of course, a big focus. There are two front-facing speakers (the ad copy claims the device 'might just be the loudest mobile phone on Earth'), and two (yes, two) headphone jacks."

Incidentally, this phone isn't built by Marshall—it just borrows the brand name.
