If those high-priced Vertu handsets don’t offer enough glitz, you could go for something just a little more obvious – the Peter Aloisson-designed Motorola V3i phone, made from gold-covered stainless steel and encrusted with 855 small diamonds.
Ideal for the average footballer’s wife, it has a typical V3i specification (which is approaching two years old) of a 1.3 megapixel camera, media player and not much else.
And the price of this glamour? Around £5,000. Although if you can do without the gold, you can have one for £2,000.
