Gresso's $50,000 Grand Premiere is a feature phone
When it comes to the software, well, let's just say that it is not exactly made from diamonds. The Grand Premiere uses the feature phone OS of Nokia - the Series 40 interface, which means that you are not going to have all the features that your iOS 5 or Android totin' buddies have. Actually, you won't have a smart phone at all. On the other hand, they can't pawn their handset and use the proceeds to buy a new car.
If you have the money to burn and really, really want the Grand Premiere, you had better hurry. Only 30 of these will be made which would bring $1.5 million into Gresso's coffers if sold out.

The very niche going to buy such jewelry is always interested in what's outside than what's inside. People like us who really think many times and go for many reviews and many comparisons and then look inside the pocket for how much they can spend maximum is people interested in a product which is best of both worlds "software and hardware within a justifiable price".

S40 =/= Symbian
S40 is a separate OS for feature phones only.

looks like phonearena need to do their homework.
S40 is not Symbian.
there are Symbian S60, Symbian S80, Symbian S90,
but no Symbian S40.
PS: if you need more information about Symbian, you can go tohttp://symbian.nokia.com/

Is it absolutely impossible to make a crazy expensive phone that actually has modern functionality?
