Cell phones are expensive enough and the bills that go with it, but seriously there are phones that are worth thousands of dollars. Call it a fashion statement if you will but these beautiful pieces of technology are better worth looking at in a museum than buying. If you have the money then, by all means knock yourself out but all I know is that I just need a cell phone that will let me have good reception let alone function.
The Vertu, which is a British brand of luxury phones, debuted in 2002, and its newest model called the Constellation Ayxta. It goes for about $6,500, in stainless steel, while precious metal versions range up to $8,600.
Christian Dior, working with ModeLabs, the French manufacturer that TAG Heuer partnered with on the Meridiist, recently introduced the second-generation version of its luxury Dior phone. This phone up against iPhones and other “app phones,” falls short on functionality. They go for about $13,000 and ranges up to $50,000 for precious metal versions. These include a lacquered wooden docking station, complete with built-in speakers and a USB device for simultaneous backup and charging. Its touchscreen measures 3.2 inches, or 81 millimeters, high-definition video playback, 32 gigabytes of internal memory and a 8-megapixel camera. It runs on Google’s Android mobile operating system.
