Vertu's four golden handsets for Japan expected to sell for $215,000 each
Luxury phones will always continue to appeal to those individuals with bottomless pockets who prefer having a truly unique device that's not commonly found anywhere. Vertu's latest handsets that are expected to be sold in Japan will really catch the gaze of people with its price tag of $215,000 for each handset. They've just announced 4 golden handsets that feature made-in-Japan gold lacquer work which includes free domestic calls to buyers of the phone. What really separates the four handsets is the fact that they are designed differently according to the different seasons of the year – Kinko, Kikusui, Nanten, and Daigo. These extremely limited edition handsets actually were crafted to mark the very first anniversary of Vertu's flagship store in Ginza, Tokyo. Not only are they made out of precious materials, but the design of the handsets showcase their individuality which ultimately makes them more desirable.

For being so expensive they sure are butt-ugly.

Why pay $215 for a decent cell phone, when you can pay 1000x the price for one with 1 tenth the functionality (if that much). Money may be the root of all evil (still don't buy that line), but it can also be a limitless source of illustrating one's stupidity when making ridiculous purchases like these.
