Cell phones have come a long way since they were first introduced to the public some decades ago. No matter how much time you spend on the road, you can always keep in touch with pretty much everyone through electronic mail, social networking sites and of course, text messages and mobile calls.
With the latest technology incorporated in practically every type of cell phone, these units are getting more and more expensive by the minute. But how much are you willing to spend to get the hottest cell phone that money can buy?
Most Expensive Cell Phone Units in the World
Believe it or not, the world’s most expensive cell phones cost more than what you’d pay for to get a brand new house and car combined. As a matter of fact, the cost for the most expensive cell phone that you can ever find all over the world would need you to shell out a measly sum of eight million US dollars!
These supped-up cell phone units are some of the latest iPhone models which, even without the embellishments, already come with a steep price tag.
But the cost of your regular iPhone is nothing when you see by how far the costs increased once they were dressed-up and made into some of the world’s most luxurious item to date.
