The most expensive cell phone in the world

in: Technology

iphone-kings-button.jpgDon’t you think it is really ridiculous product especially in this period of economic recession? Austrian jeweler Peter Aloisson has designed the world’s most expensive phone by decorating the iPhone 3G King’s button with gold and diamonds. The iPhone 3G’s ‘home’ or main operating button is set inside a high quality 6.6 carat solitaire diamond. The body of the iPhone is made of 18 carat white gold, rose gold and yellow gold. The white gold line has approximately 138 finely-shaped diamonds on it. The price of this cell phone is around €1.79 million ($2.42 million or Rs12 crore).

This is not the first time that Peter Aloisson has integrated jewels in a mobile phone. He is known to create such pieces from time to time. He is one of the top designers who can blur the line between jewels and the best of the gadgets around. But in the period of economic recession, 2.42 million $ for a mobile phone is very very big investment. It is doubtful as who can afford to buy this fanciful, but enormously expensive toy.

    Thanks for providing information on expensive cell phones in the world. The reason these cell phones are so expensive is not only purely because of the technology that the cell phones offer
