This phone is a joke. A very sad one.

I'm not launching into a debate about the feature set of the S40; nor am I whining that you can get more features for 10% of the price because those are not the yardsticks that matter for a phone like this.

What DOES matter is the bling:
the looks, the rich, sinful, luxurious, drool-worthy object of desire that turns heads, causes people to point at and whisper; maybe even break into your house and try to steal.

..but for a phone that looks as hideous as THIS, I think not.

I mean come on, "surgical steel"? Not cool. And neither is "black toned glass".

And what were they thinking when they designed those tiny button-knob keys and round D-pad?

I wouldn't pay that much for a phone that cant do what smartphones can do, also Its primitive and ugly. Anyone who actually gets one of these phones should be shot!

I'm sure he was just exaggerating to get his point across. But S40 is far, far from useless - definitely not a kids toy.

Why spend $2700 on a phone with the capabilities of a $270 one?

I'm going to get me a Vertu just for the heck of it. Yeah I got it like that. I just want to see what all the hype is with a Ferrari Phone.

This will certainly challenge the Vertu collection. I would love to see how these 2 will compare.
