World's Most Expensive Cell Phones: In the Glitter of Diamonds

Wednesday, 18 August 2010

worlds most expensive cell phonesIn the modern world, a cell phone is not a luxury item but a means of communication and a gadget facilitating business dealings. However, not everyone may agree with this statement. Though most people enjoy having a quality cell phone, they also recognize that cellular phones are a consumable good and will have to be replaced within in a few years. For this reason, people often do not purchase the most expensive cell phone when they purchase their mobile. Some, though, must have a costly mobile phone. The world's most expensive cell phones were made to satisfy just that type of person. However, an expensive cell phone can both an exclusive piece bejeweled with diamonds or a cutting edge technology solution packed into an irresistible design, without any superfluities.

While everyone else is plagued by the global crisis, the manufacturer of a new luxury phone is expecting to find a buyer for its iPhone 3G Kings Button, which is a jewel-bedecked iPhone, a brainchild of the luxury accessory producer Peter Aloisson of Moscow-based JSC Ancort. Aloisson is known for his creative approach to smartphone design. This time, however, Aloisson had the iPhone 3G to play with - and a bigger budget. One hundred and thirty-eight brilliant-cut diamonds line the sides of the 18 carat white, yellow and pink gold phone, but the real prize is the home button - a rare 6.6 carat white diamond. However, a mystery remains why the designer chose the iPhone for his creative efforts, but, hopefully, the features of this device come up to customers' expectations and one expects a lot from a phone worth $2.41 million.

The previous most expensive cell phone cost one million dollars less and went to the customer from Russia. For $1.3 million, he's got Diamond Crypto Smartphone. This luxury smartphone's price stems from the platinum body, the cover adorned with 50 diamonds, including eight that are rare blue diamonds. Built on the Windows CE, this expensive cell also features a high-resolution color TFT display and a 256 bit cryptographic algorithm. This expensive mobile phone features SMS, MMS, E-mail and Internet capability, WAP, JAVA support and even a media player.

The third claimant for the title of World's Most Expensive Cell phone is the "Le Million" from the Swiss manufacturer Goldvish. The Geneva-based luxury communications company's expensive mobile phone was designed by Emmanuel Gueit as an addition to the Illusion Collection. The curved form of the phone's body is reminiscent of 1001 nights and the expensive materials remind prospective buyers that to attain one of the prestigious phones, they would need to have at least one million euro spare for the pleasure. The phone is made of 18k white gold and set with 20 carats of VVS1 (only microscopically flawed) diamonds. The phone's technical aspects match its beauty. Besides a camera with 8 setting zoom, radio and MP3-player, the phone offers infrared Bluetooth and a high-speed data transfer via EDGE technology. A two-gigabyte memory card is included in the seven-figure cost price.

A new GoldVish Revolution phone comes with 369 000 Euros price tag and combines not only the visual beauty, the case of white and pink gold, diamonds weighing 29 carats, but smartphone features and the excellence of a genuine Swiss watch. It would seem that this combination is absolutely unnecessary, because any modern cell phone displays the time, but on the other hand, a Swiss watch is more of a style and status marker than anything else, and if combined with the phone ...

When speaking of the world's most expensive phones, one cannot leave out Vertu (the British division of Nokia, specializing in luxury phones design and production) and the Vertu Signature Diamond Collection, limited edition of 200 pieces, each worth $350 000. The golden case is decorated with diamonds. Unlike the Vertu phone, the Black Diamond from Sony Ericsson worth $300 000 is not made of gold though limited to only 5 pieces.

The price of this phone comes from actual state of the art technology instead of a bunch of shiny rocks - but that doesn't mean it lacks visual appeal. The phone's interior is also well appointed: The color display, at 5 cm is more than big enough to display the photos from the integrated 4 mega-pixel camera. Thanks to quadband technology the Black Diamond can be used in almost all corners of the globe. The VIPN cell phone supports Internet telephoning via W-LAN and its possible access Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Entertainment features include a music and video player. The mirror finish gives the phone a sleek, futuristic look.

Mass produced luxury and remarkable phones are also worth mention in this context, as they are much easier to purchase than those limited series gadgets. Diamond-bejeweled iPhone is not uncommon, and if you're enthusiastic enough, you can find a phone with 527 diamonds for $14 000. In case of Blackberry, the cheapest bejeweled model will cost you as much as $5 700, while diamond-free Platinum Vertu Signature Platinum costs $70 000, and its specifications are already obsolete.

In general, the most expensive luxury cell phones in any case will be decorated with diamonds. Somehow, cell phone designers are reluctant to use other precious stones. However, regardless of the sophistication and visual appeal, the phone still must perform on the technical level, which becomes more and more challenging every year. Its specifications outdated, the diamond-splattered luxury cell phone becomes merely a plaything, a piece of jewelry, ill-suited for communication, and one has to buy another phone.
