A 300,000 dollar cell phone - Celsius X VI II LeDix

So, what does a $300,000 cell phone look like? Made from polished and brushed grade 5 titanium, the Celsius X VI II LeDix features a flying tourbillion equipped with exclusive shock-absorbers, and a modern transparent design. There are around 600 mechanical parts in the phone, including 330 that deal with the watch movement alone.

One of the main features of the phone is the Remontage Papillon. Housed inside a hinge, the Butterfly Winding is activated with each opening, thereby adding three hours of power reserve to the total 100 hours.

Suppose you're mega-rich and can afford one of the 18 limited editions. Is the Celsius X VI II LeDix worth its hefty price tag? It caught my eye because of its pretty aesthetic, but without many spectacular features, it's probably best to just hang on to your BlackBerry or iPhone.
