On February 21, 2012 by Stylish Mr Gordon

Yes folks let me assure you that you did indeed read the title correctly. This luxury mobile phone by Aesir Copenhagen and designed by Yves Behar costs a little over $57,000.  Even if you spend in Euro’s this pretty little number will still set you back around €43,000.  

For those of you wanting a sim only deal, this may not be quite what you had in mind when you wanted to save money.

So What Do I Get For My Buck

 

The concept here was more about making a functional phone and so sound quality was more important than some of the razzle dazzle you’d expect in most modern mobile phones.  With this understanding you may no longer need to take a moment to ponder how a mobile phone costing close to $60,000 is not equipped with a camera, games or GPS.  However, what you do get from Aesir Copenhagen is an aesthetically pleasing 18 carat yellow gold phone with sapphire crystal lenses, laser engraved keypad characters with LED backlighting, caller ID, text, calendar, calculator and Bluetooth functions and an open SIM card.

Oops I Forgot My Wallet

 

It’s happened to all of us at one point or another: you’ve gone to buy and incredibly expensive mobile phone and you realise you are short by a couple thousand dollars.  Well not to worry…those guys over at Aesir Copenhagen are very understanding.  In fact they are so understanding that they have a stainless steel version which will retail for a mere $11,000.  I know…this has just become affordable right?  That said, you will never have to pretend you’ve lost your wallet now!
