Vertu at Cilantro

Courtesy of a good buddy and Swiss Union, was invited to the launch of the premium handset in Malaysia in partnership with Swiss Union... wow what a dinner! Fine food (salmon, fois gras, lovely dessert), superb wine, beautiful women and excellent company filled the evening (at Cilantro). The phones themselves are amazing in hand... heavy and tangible - they have gold, rubies and platinum with a sapphire display. Not technical marvels (some models don't even have MMS), most of them are bought as political gifts ^_^ The cost? RM18k for the cheapest... going to RM29k for the gold one and RM100k for the platinum one.
