When it comes to luxury and designer cell phones I'll freely admit I'm a bit of a tease. It's always look, but don't touch. Well, sadly my friends, such is the case with the ISSE Monaco Phones from Nokia 8800, which is set to be released in gold, platinum and diamonds in Russia...They may still be out of reach for most (considering their market and unknown cost), but they're just so pretty I had to share.
The upcoming Nokia 8800 phones have been taken to new extremes thanks to an excess of gems and rare earth elements. The handsets are decorated with top quality diamonds, ruby, topaz and garnet (1.5 carats to be exact) and the sapphire display is said to be scratch proof - even with your car keys. Right now, they are available only in Russia, but ISSE insist their sights are firmly set on Europe. Can you say US please? I know Fergie will buy one!
