I think the mclaren edition on the sx1 was better. Atleast they were selling it at the same price with more goodies and that sexy black colour. I dunno if nokia will be able to sell them unless the price comes down

you dont buy a 8800 for features. you buy it just for its style and exclusivivty.nd if u think 8800 is a ripoff check out Vertu

Rightly said khank, its just a style and exclusivity in buying the Nokia AM-8800 for 940 its more like for the category of people who have the money but not as much to spend 9,400 to 23,000 to buy a vertu.



Cheers,
ash

vertus are useless completely. No features et al. buy a siemens sl65 escada instead.

atleast 8800 has some to boast about like stainless steel and lots of presence.

except the concierge button........lol

vertu has been officially launched in india. i saw the event on a news channel. it was always available in india officially dont know why they launched it.among the brand ambassadors are karan johar, ajay bijli(pvr cinemas) shobha de nd a couple of others.

i dont feel vertus are useless. ur paying for exclusivity which is priceless also the materials used..........refer to the vertu thread for more
