Vertu shipping world's most expensive cellphone?

updated 12:20 pm EST, Thu December 21, 2006

Vertu Signature Cobra

Catering to the world's richest capitalists and aristocracy, the Signature Cobra by Vertu may be the world's most expensive cellphone. The shell's snake motif is covered in extremely expensive gems cut by French jeweler Boucheron, including a round diamond, a pear-cut diamond, two emeralds for the eyes, and 439 rubies. A "cheaper" version called the Signature Python does away with the rubies. Buying one of the world's eight production Cobras will cost you $310,000; the Python is a compartively thrifty $115,000. No information is available on the practical features of the phones, such as whether or not they have Internet access. [Via CNN]

    pitiful

    Great, a cell phone for extremely wealthy people who are so terminally self-absorbed and clueless that they can't think of something better to do with hundreds of thousands of dollars than buy a jewel-encrusted PHONE, for pity's sake. Just my opinion, but anyone caught with one of these should be slapped to death.
