A cell phone made to last

This cell phone costs $8500, but it is made to last for a long time. From the Fast Company article:

"What it lacks in features, it makes up for in quality, from the gold and steel metalwork by luxury-watch craftspeople to custom ringtones by the Danish-Vietnamese musician Chris Minh Doky. The flourishes include real metal screws rather than glue, a ceramic body (like you might find a Rado watch), individually articulated buttons, and a screen made not of plastic or glass, but rather crystal sapphire, polished and coated much like a camera lens."

Read all about it here.

  1. after having a stupid phone die 2 weeks after it's 1 year warentee - and dealing with new systems, new buttons, noises, and a phone that is constantly trying to connect to the internet like a 12 year old boy - honestly - $8500 sounds like it's totally worth avoiding all the trouble. Worst part is I bet they could build this for the cost of the $98.99 phones they have out there now that do everything and too much but don't last. LOVE THIS POST!!! thank you
