Excited by Plastic? Me excited by Liquid Metal

Interesting. According to THIS, Nokia's luxury brand at one time used it limitedly, but Apple is going to attempt to make it mass-producible.

I always wondered what these people do with their $5,000 gold-plated, $50,000 diamond-encrusted phones after the 18 month obsolescence period. Unload them on eBay?

Is anyone even buying these contraptions? Or are they like "concept cars" - to be strutted out to grab attention at industry shows and on media - but never to be sold.

The entire liquid metal ordeal won't make it anytime soon. It is IMO, in a beta test right now and when first reported it was still being modified in an alpha test stage.

Lets wait so that all manufacturing quirks are resolved (avoiding a potential bottleneck).

Agree! Those Vertu phones are such a waste. They wreak pretentious; "I'm so rich." I've seen them only in display cases at Tourneau and have yet to see anyone flaunt it.
