We are geeks – geeks passionate about smartphone technology. We love high-end smartphones powered by multi-core processors, with tons of RAM, humongous high-definition displays, ultra fast 4G connectivity, and whatever technical mumbo jumbo you can think of.
Most billionaires are not geeks. They would much rather get a diamond-covered handset that will be used primarily for making calls. Yet still, there are offerings that combine the best of both worlds – handsets that do offer the functionality of a smartphone paired with a respectable amount of flashiness.
10 luxury smartphones that we will likely never own, but it is cool to take a look at them anyway. If you can think of a luxury smartphone that we should have included, do not hesitate to let us know!This is what we have for you today. We present you with a selection of

Anyone else notice the description of the Gresso Lady Blanche iPhone 4 says, "New York, Paris, and Moscow," but the phone says New York, London, and Moscow? Paris = France; London = England; Paris =/= London.

Umm there is a big difference between throwing away money on a shiny phone and having class. I actually think these phones show people you have no class because they are pretty much bling. I would much rather have a Rolex and a regular smartphone than own one of these tasteless phones.

I think it is hilarious that my favorite platform, Symbian, will very shortly only be available from Vertu. I guess I won't be getting a new Symbian device ever again... All of these phones are cool, but, at the same time, totally rediculous...

$129,000 for a phone,waste of money if you ask me,people who waste money to buy this should be sued for improper money management techniques

In most cases, it really is their money... let them waste it so that the worker who assembles the things can spend their own pay better. Granted that a lot of that money goes back into company profits, but even a quarter of $129,000 will seriously feed a lot of folks for a good while. Besides, if there ever was some huge EMP blast, the owner of a gold-plated diamond-encrusted device could, in theory, repair the connectivity of their disabled device by using scraps of the gold shell to re-wire the thing's internals, bypassing burned out transistors, and then pick one of the freakin' rocks off of the thing to use as a ground crystal for the antenna to work in an 'alternate electronic arrangement'... ever heard of a crystal-set radio? (Sarcasm wins!)
