    that is probably the dumbest idea. i am spending 600 bucks on an iphone, and that is a lot. if anyone spends 1600 bucks on a phone they are flat out retarded. that phone is not even aesthetically pleasing at all. it looks ridiculous.

    smells like vertu

    check out www.vertu.com - nokias "super luxury phones"

    I mean, they take a BASIC nokia headset, bedazzle it with diamonds and gold, and then sell it for thousands of dollars. I'm sorry, what a joke.

    real luxury goods (fine watches, jewelry etc.) sort of keep their value as time goes on. You really can't do that with computer tech, since it's going to become obsolete after 2 - 3 years. That's why I always think it's super silly when you see the 10k phone, or some super-luxury laptop. gimme a break

    People who live on a dollar a day would say the same about the 600$ iphone, its all about your perspective.

    Doesn't look worth the price tag, but it looks so very slick. And a fingerprint reader is cool too. Not a fan of the buttons though :p

    sure, but if you look at it, how much better than an iphone can any phone be, and to pay 1600 dollars just because something has the name porsche on it. it is like the difference between clothes at old navy at a place like abercrombie. with porsche you are paying a lot for the name (and apple you still have the same situation but its less and u get the better functionality)

    Wow... $1600?

    That better have some special features, like dialing 1 will not give you voicemail, rather call someone to give you a what-what

    I'm sure all it has going for it is looks. I'm sure it's software is about as advanced as a normal phone.

    I disagree...if some company can offer a phone, with features that justify 1600 on a phone, and people have the cash, why not?


    However this phone, or any phone on the market(that I know of) doesn't offer those features(to me)

    Honestly, that phones is ugly.
