No, phones like these are aimed at individuals who have more money than sense or taste.
guys, this phone was designed for the wealthy individuals out there who are after craftmanship rather than functionality.

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.

Anonymous, 14 Jan 2011You are so right! These phones are so stxpid!!!! Just look at the specs! If you are going to f... moreI agree. It is like having a car with a Ferrari chassis and Diahatsu engine. I think Vertu must use Android as an operating system for their phones.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2011such beautiness mustn't be crashed with a horrible camera and led hole on the back. the custom... moreBlackberry are the most used phone in the business world and it still have a camera (not a good one). So I have to disagree with you when you said Nokia made a mistake adding a camera for the E-seri
Still isn't appealing. Just for rich people to burn their money instead of donating it to a needy source...
Doh3rty, 13 Jan 2011These phones are pointless what is the point in forking out thousands of pounds on a phone tha... morea lot of people buy high end smartphones just because they're expensive
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.
