The waves of opulence are expected to wash down the names of Vertu, Goldvish, Amosu, and the likes as the ‘World’s most expensive mobile phone’. They now have stiff competition from the Ancort phone. This Russian company, JSC Ancora, has partnered with jeweler Peter Alisson to conceive an incredibly expensive version of Swiss Crypto Telecommunication Security’s Crypto Smart telephone that carries and exceeding price tag of $1.3 million. At this price, it’s undeniably got gold and diamonds to its list for main features. But it also boasts of its security features for mobile phone privacy. The solid platinum Crypto Smartphone uses an asymmetric 256-bit cryptographic algorithm and the Windows CE operating system. In addition to the platinum body, the Ancora logo and the navigation key are made of 18 carats rose gold, as is the navigation key which also carries 28 round cut diamonds.
The phone also comes with a Connolly leather carrying case with platinum trimmings and lock and hand made Macassar ebony presentation box with beige suede leather lining again with platinum trimmings and lock. When the box is opened, it plays music and the music can be changed to your (client’s) choice.
Space has been reserved on the phone and leather pouch for personalization with the company logo or client’s name and initials.
