Gresso's Luxor

The market for ultra-luxury mobile phones is bizarrely growing, and the latest entry is Gresso's Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot phone. Interested buyers will certainly need to win the jackpot to afford this one.

Admittedly, the Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot is made from several precious materials, including 18-karat gold, black diamonds, sapphires, and...200-year-old African Blackwood. (Is that a selling point?) Sounds more like the makings of a beautiful tiara rather than a cell phone.

However, there aren't any details as to the phone's specs. A friend of mine said upon first seeing the Gresso device that "it's a blinged out crappy phone," which might very well be true.

Only three of this jewel-adorned devices will ever be made (for now), and each will cost a whopping $1,000,000.

Motorola

Austrian designer Peter Aloisson has taken a standard Motorola, studded it with 1,200 diamonds and added a keyboard inlaid with 18 carat gold. The outcome is a £28,000 handset, suitable only for footballers and film stars!

Gold Nokia 8800 Mobile Phone

If you have $2,700 to spare, you can now buy the Nokia 8800 in 24K gold. However, be warned if you think you’ll be getting a better phone for your extra cash, you wont! The features found on the Gold Edition are the standard 8800 features which are pretty basic.

However, the Gold Edition does includes a special edition box and charging dock!

Only 200 are being made and each one has its limited number engraved on the back. At $1,900 however, you’re still paying an awfully high premium for a fairly basic phone encased in wood!

Bang & Olufsen (Samsung) Serene = $1,250 (£675)

Bang and olufsen serene mobile phone

Bang & Olufsen hooked up with Samsung to design the sleek but unconventional Serene. It’s not a bad looking phone and even has a built-in motor to assist you in opening and closing the phone. It’s not very practical however, requiring a special screwdriver to access the battery and the SIM card and the circular keypad will take some getting used to. Also for some strange reason they have positioned the camera lens on the side of the device, which will make it difficult to align snapshots via the viewfinder on the display.

Peter Aloisson’s Kings Button iPhone $2.4 million


The Kings Button iPhone is, surprisingly, a jewel-bedecked iPhone. This time, however, Aloisson had the iPhone 3G to play with—and, apparently, a bit of a bigger budget. One hundred and thirty-eight brilliant-cut diamonds line the sides of the phone, but the real prize is the home button—a rare 6.6 carat white diamond.
