Yea the XDA is pretty cool but thts a PDA. This is a normal phone. You dont use a stylus on this touchscreen but ur thumb. Somthing like the Ipod. Also this unit retails at 330 Euros without the memoryy card which is a lot cheaper than the XDA 2. This isnt a business phone but a normal phone packed with functions. Go to the site and see the guy using

This should put the whole thing into perspective.

Heres another phone - The Vertu. Limited functions but a beautiful phone. More of a work of art than a phone. Crystal Display Cover. Jewel Encrusted Keys and a lot more.

www.vertu.com



Its available only at the old Taj in Mumbai and retails for around 6000 Euros. Thats more than ur M800

I guess this is one of the most exclusive phones you can get. I know Fardeen Khan and Abhishek Bacchan have one.

heres what the company has to say about the phone

VERTU IS A STORY OF OBSESSION.

SOURCING THE BEST MATERIALS IN SERVICE OF A VISION OF ULTIMATE LUXURY. THE END RESULT IS AN OBJECT SO CAREFULLY CRAFTED, YOU'LL FIND THE OBSESSION WORTH IT AND THE PRICE TAG IRRELEVANT.


THE VERTU VISION

VERTU REPRESENTS CREATIVE DIRECTOR FRANK NUOVO’S VISION OF THE ULTIMATE LUXURY COMMUNICATION DEVICE - AN UNPRECEDENTED FUSION OF ENGINEERING, DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY. NOTHING OF THIS KIND HAS BEEN ACHIEVED BEFORE, AT ANY PRICE

I think Vertu is a division of Nokia. Caters to the ultra luxury market.

Hey,
Well,a close friend of mine has the Vertu platinum phone.He hardly uses it,but its more os a show-off equipment to all the parties.I've myself used that phone for some time,and it is damn heavy.Its got diamond beaded on the inside of the phone,and no camera nothing.Its more of a useless phone.My friend paid around 6500 euros for it.

X

p.s : Sanju baba's got a Vertu gold costing nearly 20,000 euros.

The phone is said to have the perfect click using 18 jewels a button. Did you notice anything different? Also did you feel that the "at any cost" design is good/?
