The world's most expensive mobile phone

An iPhone 4 encrusted with diamonds from the British designer, Stuart Hughes, will set you back a cool £5 million.  The device is being heralded as the world’s most expensive mobile phone and was commissioned by an Australian businessman. The handset is covered in more than 500 individual diamonds totalling 100 carats, and it comes with two interchangeable diamonds that fit over the ‘home’ button.  Clearly, one of these phones wasn’t enough for him as he asked for two to be made…

    Product personalization really is limitless!

    Pah! What a waste of money. I wouldn’t want such a thing even if I could afford it. Just think what better things you could do if you had five million quid to spare.

    I would ‘adopt’ a village in a deprived area and provide the people with education and a means to earn a living. What would you do?

  4. Even if it gets broken and rendered useless as a phone, it would still be worth a fortune.

    It does rather seem a nonsense for a phone that’s going to be obsolete in the not too distant future.

  8. irene says:

    if only i had the 5 million i could spend it and certainly not on a phone! wonder what the demand for this would be?

    But does the battery last?!! That is my biggest gripe with mobiles, I could live without the diamonds if I had good reception and good battery life! Just think of all the other worth while things you could do with that money!
