I’m glad Nokia made the Vertu line. They deserve to have a little fun. But a $7,000 cellphone is just about the upper limit of what I can accept in the luxury market. Dear Oil-rich Sultans and Oligarchs: send me your old Nokia and I’ll dip it in golden paint and send it back to you for $3,500. You’ll get the same effect while spending half of what you’d normally spend on a similar Vertu and you’ll have some cash left over to rent midgets or whatever it is you people do with your wealth. It’s either that or we eat you, rich people, decide.
