Vertu Selling Ultra-Limited Edition “Golden” Cellphones, May Not be as Ridiculous as We Think

To celebrate the first anniversary of their flagship store in Tokyo, Vertu – the luxury brand of cellphone giant Nokia – will be selling four “golden” cellphones. The price? ¥20,000,000 (appx. $215,000 USD) each. The handsets are not really made of gold – they’re “just” decorated with Japanese gold lacquerwork, and they do look amazing. Maybe not $215,000 amazing, but still amazing. The four designs symbolize the four different seasons.

What makes the price of these phones easier to swallow is that their owners will be entitled to free domestic calls. To whoever buys one of these phones: use it to call the person beside you, use it to call your dog, whatever. You deserve it.

CrunchGear says that Vertu will sell only four of these handsets worldwide, which basically means they’ll be selling one of each design. If your boss gets one of these, then he can really say that his phone is unique. Maybe not $215,000 unique, but unique nonetheless.
