Actually, Zee, to be honest it also DOES help in self-esteem and showing off.
Pepsi, 24 Jan 2009How can a person with a life just need the basics? Someone with a life might want instant m... moreYou have a point. But, I said "2-3 years" not "8-9 years" so it's not just basics. As others have said, it can do most of these things. And look at it like this: this phone costs 1700 euros in my country. People who can afford it already have a car, a 12-megapixel camera, a laptop, a GPS receiver should they need one, an iPod, a hi-fi stereo, and if they want to instantly message someone they call him - phone bill is not an issue. If you can afford it, you get one quality thing for every task, not one plastic "it does all" thing. As a phone, Aura can do most things you need, if you don't have anything else at your disposal at the moment. And it feels good, not for showing off, or self-esteem, but because it's metal, unique and almost emotional in the approach, a work of art and fine craftmanship instead of standard mass production. Sure I can't afford this, just like I can't afford a Ferrari, but I can still admire it. If more phone makers would have the guts to release non-standard phones the market would look better than it does now... man, I can't tell phones apart any more.

Someone with a life might want instant messenger to talk to friends, email for work, an application that could tell them the weather forcast while they're at their friends house - maybe if they wanted to go to the beach, I could go on and on and on but the point is someone with a life would want something that gave them more oportunities.
kaser, 22 Jan 2009it does not mean any thing to carry this mobile phoneWell, imagine if you carried a regular plastic-fantastic phone, one of the millions of same-looking phones (won't mention any brand names). What would it say about you?
2-3 years ago cell phones already had everything that a person (I mean: person with a life) needs. But you don't see phones that aren't looking like throwaway kitchen appliances so very often. Thumbs up!
