The £150,000 mobile phone. Quadband handset from VPN
Five limited edition diamond studded handsets worth £159,000 each have been developed by Swiss internet phone company VIPN.
Called the Black Diamond, it comes with one diamond on the navigation joystick and a second diamond embedded into the back of the phone.
Both diamonds are engraved with an authenticity number and come from Swiss diamond retailer Diamanthaus.
The quad-band handset comes with a touch sensitive keypad, a mirror-finish shell, camera and memory card slot. Big spenders interested in VIPN's creation will have to wait until next year to buy the phone. It will be available early 2007.
