    UK Smartphone that costs £7000

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21387371

    The Vertu Ti costs 7,900 euros (£6,994) and is made at the firm's headquarters in Church Crookham, Hampshire.
    The device had a titanium frame and sapphire screen but was not 4G-enabled, said its designer Hutch Hutchison.
    Until last year the company was owned by Nokia and specialised in highly priced handsets designed for the Symbian operating system.
    Vertu had chosen Android over Windows as an operating system because it was more established, chief executive Perry Oosting told the BBC.

    Re: Wanna pay 7 grand for a smartphone

    That's less than a cup of bad coffee at Starbucks.

    For £7000, I'd want it installed in a nice car (which came free with the phone)

    Wow. I can think of better things to spend £7000 on.

    I'm not going to claim to understand it, but I think the idea of spending £7000 on something like this is to prove that you can spend £7000 on something like this.

    I am I understanding the concierge service correctly in that it's like Siri, except that it's a real person being paid to talk to you?

    Things might have been different back in the days of the original Motorola "brick", when mobile phone technology was in a younger incarnation, but these days I have a hard time accepting the idea that you'd actually need a phone that cost more than $200.

    i can buy 12 galaxy SIII with the same price. overall I think the price is fair since it is not a mass production product, therefore it is expensive for the manifacturer to built(probably around 2k per unit)

    What's a dial? Is that one of those new-fangled gizmos that the phone company installed into my parents' phone in the early 1970s?
