Vertu makes some of the most expensive mobile phones in the world, and its latest handset continues that tradition. The handset is called the Vertu Boucheron 150 and it's constructed of solid gold. I think the design is very weird looking with lots of planes and angles.

The case of the phone is built from a single piece of gold and is said to take more than 2,000 hours to build by hand. The phone ships in a luxury wooden box. The actual phones internals are unknown; in fact, the only fact about the phone part of the Vertu handset is that it offers 3G connectivity.

Pricing for the beast is not confirmed, but rumors peg the Boucheron 150 at $30,000. That is a lot of money for what appears to be an old school candy bar style phone swathed in a rather unattractive gold case. If I were rich, I'd rather spend my money on women and exotic cars… well mostly exotic cars.
