Aabhas Sharma lists some of the most fancifully customised and expensive phones.
The Vertu Constellation Quest Ferrari has been crafted where interior parts of the Ferrari GT are made. It comes in a leather slip which acts as a cover. The titanium battery cover has the Cavallino Rampante (prancing horse) symbol in stainless steel. It also has handmade Ferrari calf leather integrated into the design. Specifications? Will you buy it for brand value or specs?
Porsche Design Blackberry
The specifications are similar to those of any other BB phone, a minor difference being you get a "premium" Blackberry Messenger PIN compared to the regular PIN of other BB phones. It has a stainless steel frame and weighs 155g. The design makes it eye-catching.
Tag Heuer Racer
A phone with shockproof rubber chassis and supported by titanium - yes titanium - screws? That's the Tag Heuer Racer Sub Nano limited edition phone. It's water resistant - the internal components have been given a special nano layer treatment. An Android phone, it has Tag Heuer wallpapers and ring tones. Only 500 of these phones have been made.
