Ouch Factor: With its gold frame and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal front keys, the Nokia Oro may well be a luxury version of the highly customised Nokia C7 smartphone. But it hardly holds a candle to the more pimped up, limited edition iPhone 4.  

Plated in 18k gold, the Oro comes with an 8MP camera and is pre-loaded with Symbian Anna, the latest Nokia OS But what lets us down is the 8GB of internal storage capacity. Priced at of $1,126 (approx Rs 50,990), the Nokia Oro is expected to be available in the third quarter of this year.
