Times are hard, or so they say. The folks at Vertu scoff at that idea though, coming up with this brand new luxury handset that will surely have you (and King Midas) drooling - assuming you can afford one, that is. The Vertu Boucheron 150 was specially commissioned by the Parisian jewelry establishment to celebrate its 150th device, and it is created out of solid gold, taking a whopping 1,000 hours to shape, 700 hours to hand polish it and 500 hours to build it without machines but human hands. The sapphire crystal keypad will definitely be lovely to touch, and you get a lovely wooden case from Noce Pedullo walnut courtesy of Swiss house Reuge. It is tipped that the Vertu Boucheron 150 will retail for at least $30,000, making this one uber expensive 3G handset.
