USD 1.3Million Cell Phone

This is not a Tech blog, and I am not that keen on the latest cell phone technology. But this one really caught my attention.

Ancort Diamond Phone

The Diamond Crypto Smartphone. This phone has been designed by an Austrian jeweler, Peter Aloisson for a Moscow based company, JSC Ancort. The price tag for one phone is USD 1.3 Million!

The difference between other costly phones and this one is the inclusion of very strong encryption.if you happen to have another really rich buddy with a taste for gaudy phones, you two can have completely encrypted conversations; and probably the undivided attention of some folk at the NSA.

The phone comes in either White or Pink gold, with 50 diamonds (10 of them Blue) embedded in the cover. The phone retails for a whopping 1.3 Million Dollars.

And strangely enough, it seem to have been out for over a year. Anyone heard of it already?
