There is a "luxury" version of everything, from luxury towels to luxury bags. When it comes to luxury mobile phones, Vertu phones are definitely on the top of the list.

Made of 69.25 carat pure scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, hard wearing ceramic fit for space shuttles, jewelled ruby bearing to support each key and around the clock/world concierge service, each phone costs a whooping $20000!! Roughly that is- and no I did not accidently typed in an extra zero.

And for the Paris Hilton's of the world, they even made a limited edition 2005 one in pink, with soft pink backlighting and hand embossed pink leather!
But for those who are not mega rich, Nokia (who also owns Vertu) created the Nokia 8800 series based on Vertu phones. It has an impressive 5 megapixel camera, scratch-resistant glass screen, high quality stainless steel body, stunning color display and a very cool and fun to play with sliding design. Plus the price is only $1000, 1/20 of Vertu's price. So I guess this is the not-so-luxurious luxury phone?

5 megapixel camera on a cell phone, now that's what I'm talking about! Way to go Nokia, maybe they're finally starting to get their edge back. Maybe? Ha.

20,000 buckaroos on a CELL phone!!! Now c'mon people don't you have something better to spend your money on?!

Oooh yes, I have heard of and seen this phone. Kind of amazing how much ppl are willing to pay for a phone. But I heard it only gets really expensive if you pick to have extras added on, like gold and diamonds.

"It has an impressive 5 megapixel camera"
The Nokia 8800 DOES NOT have 5 Megapixel!! Check your sources.. It has an svga camera, which is normal for Nokia. It is just a normal phone with a bit special design. It is just a new zippo phone. This is what it says in the nokia pages about 8800:"

I bought my Nokia 8800 a couple of weeks ago and this phone is excellent – A+. I’m 100% happy so far and all my mates are looking to get one too. Great looking, easy to use, and really well built. Girlfriend bought me a goldplated mobile phone cover for the Nokia 8800 from and it now looks super cool!
