The $19,900 cell phone!!!! unREAL!

i met a friend lastnight from out of town that had the MOST beautiful cell phone ive ever seen. it was so nice im like, hell im buying one despite the price. so i go online to see how much they cell for, GASP!!! close to $20,000!! can you believe this?

i mean i understand jewelry, but what about technology that gets outdated in less than a year ? it just seems foolish if you ask me. my next cell will probably be that Nokia V90 pocket pc/phone. they are good looking too.

what do you guys think?

here is one for sale on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3005045385&category=15044

unbelievable!

The phone comes with Ruby bearings under each keypad ensure precise key press.
I think this is for those who find it extremely difficult to press keys precisely and misdial all the time.

I posted an article on this back in Decemeber I think.. about this over priced phone. There are 3 types.. one is made of platinum, gold, and steel. Alon also said in that thread that Gwyenth Paltrow has that phone.

Yes. I have seen advertisement on this phone as well. I think the $20,000 is just the entry level. The good news is once you buy one, they will upgrade the phone's technology for life.

Still too much money for a phone.

ITs only a friggin phone!!!!

Thats why I still use my MB startac. Its a phone, its reliable, and it works perfectly all the time.

What more do you need. Partly the reason I havent gotten any of the new phones, I.E. t68, V60, R800, nokia 7650 etc etc. Because I want a cellphone to do just what it does, work as a phone. I don't need them to do anythign else.

paying that much for a phone is just ridiculous.

Saw a blurb about the phone(s) in Forbes just before the threads about them came out!

When you are bored and have mucho $$$$, it's just yet another toy.

I dropped my Nokia this weekend and cracked the display...oh well, time to get a $20K phone!

Or...replace the Nokia and buy a used 500e! Now THAT makes sense!

that's a vertu, right? I heard they have platinum, leather, gold, the works. If you have too much money, that certainly is a cool thing to get.
