No, phones like these are aimed at individuals who have more money than sense or taste.

Again the people commenting that if they had the money they would not buy it or Nokia sucks etc... Wake up the reason Nokia has Vertu is the same reason The Swatch Group has Omega Sa and Rado timepieces in the same portfolio,it is so they can diversify their portfolio and make it more appealing to the majority stock holders so they can show they have a true luxury item, and again most of those "ultra rich" that can afford these phones buy them and hardly ever use them, it is out of appreciation of the craftsmanship and the simple fact that they can buy it on a impulse,the same person buys a Patek Philippe and Louis Moinet timepiece for every other day of the week so a $80,000 Vertu is just another toy to add to their collection of already overpriced toys like the Ulysse Nardin Android or the GoldVish ‘Le Million’ Piece Unique or any diamond encrusted iPhone and realistically their personal assistants or secretaries probably use regular phones like the rest of us use.Be it Android,Nokia,Blackberry or iPhone and whatever else is out there. So please stop bashing Nokia just for making a truly beautiful hand crafted mobile.

Still isn't appealing. Just for rich people to burn their money instead of donating it to a needy source...

majority of galaxy iphone and other breakable phones dont use more then 10% of their phones
so, this makes perfect sense

also, people who buy this, dont go around reading silly comments on websites

I have the money for this and I think it's a stylish cellphone, nonetheless I don't like Nokia nor Ferrari... wake me up when some phonemaker does a good phone (maybe with Android 2.x or maybe the successor of Windows Phone 7) in cooperation with Lamborghini.
