What would you buy with a cool million dollars? A mobile phone? No, me either, but Austrian craftsman Peter Aloisson is hoping some people will, as he's going to be crafting the world’s first million-dollar mobile.
This won't be the first 'high end' luxury mobile phone. Nokia started the trend with the hideous Vertu, loved, apparently, by Madge and Posh. the followed the Samsung and Bang and Olufsen Serene. But the Serene is only £1,000, and the Vertu a slightly more wallet-damaging $84,000. But $1 million for a mobile? WTF?!
Of course the mobile phone will feature solid gold parts with 2,590 diamonds, but surely they're better placed (and, some would argue, ever so slightly less vulgar) on, say, jewellery?! And no doubt, following the trend set by the other high end phones, the features of this one will be pants as well. To those who go and buy one, simply: Why?!
