What Does a $9,800 Windows Mobile Phone Look Like?

Made from African Blackwood with real gold buttons, the Gresso phones, dubbed the Avantgarde Collection, will be available in Q4 of 2007.

Both phones, the Luna and Sol, will be equipped with WM6 Standard, a QVGA screen, Bluetooth, and Roman numerals on the keypad instead of normal numbers like we’re all used to. In terms of price, the one seen below at top will sell for an easy 5000 Euro (that’s about USD$6800), and the one on the bottom, which is laden with more gold, costs 7000 Euro (that’s about USD$9800).

The release doesn’t mention whether the device will have 3G capability or any other interesting feature that would justify the astronomical price…but I’m sure for more than the cost of a dozen (or two) Windows Mobile devices, it’ll pack at least UMTS, right?
