By the end of July Nokia’s high-end Vertu handset stores in Tokyo are going to be shut. Vertu is having bad times, because of the rising popularity of Apple iPhone and other smartphones.

The cost of Vertu handsets is 600,000 yen ($7,450) to 20 million yen ($248,354) each. Some models are decorated with traditional Japanese lacquer designs.
