A new limited edition mobile phone from Goldvish, the Swiss cell-phone maker has beat the Vertu collection to being the world’s costliest phone ever. If you thought that the Vertu was mind-bogglingly expensive, think twice. This particular collection called PLATO and referred to as “Le million” PIECE UNQIUE was awarded a Guiness World Record for the unique distinction of being the Most Expensive & Most Exclusive handset worldwide. Since this is a limited edition, only 100 sets will be made and distributed around the world.
According to current pricing, this handset costs approximately USD 1,270,000 – that’s right ! Close to one point two million dollars.
The sets are encased with 120 carats of diamonds, made of white gold, sport sapphire glass displays and incorporate the advanced quad-band technology. According to Goldvish, these sets are a
“fusion of exclusive Swiss watch-making and high-tech, combined with the type of after-sales service that only a high-end luxury brand can give.”
The phone was featured recently at the Millionaire’s Fair in Moscow.
Personally, even if I had the money to buy one of these, I wonder if I’d feel safe at all walking around with one. I’d probably need to be flanked by a mini-army of armed security-men.
