"Half times more" eh? At least learn to say it right if you are going to insult someone/something.

Probably less than 50 people ... By the way, I have one with crocodile's back leather and use it only in business meetings. I love it.. It is so unique

Porsche Design BlackBerry's have always been for the elitist, politicians and celebrities that can afford them. It's an expensive line of BlackBerry devices for the big money makers that don't care about or need big specs, just big style. It's a luxury phone for the luxurious.

Exactly! Just like a watch made by Hublot won't tell time any better then most other brands. It's all about having something exotic that few others have.

A $20 Timex tells time the same as a $5,000 Rolex. I had a very expensive Lucien Piccard in the 70s that spent more time at the jeweler's repair shop than on my wrist. I could beat the sh!t out of a Casio and never notice the difference.

As India is my bordering neighbour country, so this could mean that the phone would be priced with the same hefty price tag here too.
