Former Nokia subsidiary Vertu has abandoned Symbian in favor of Android for its latest operating system, but the company has kept its values on making incredibly expensive smartphones.
Nokia's luxury brand Vertu has been cranking out absurdly expensive phones for nearly 15 years, but it has yet to release anything that tugs at the heartstrings of a smartphone lover. That is is to change, apparently, as the Bluetooth SIG has revealed what looks to be Vertu's first smartphone device with a touchscreen, the Constellation T.
Proving that it is possible to create an uber-luxury cell phone that looks like it's been run over by a truck, Vertu has created the Boucheron 150, a special edition design for the 150th anniversary of the Boucheron jewelry house in Paris, France.
Vertu has announced a new Ferrari inspired limited edition of its Ascent Ti model. The Ascent Ti Ferrari will be available in Nero, Rosso, and Giallo paint schemes.
Vertu's new Signature S Design luxury cell phone has passed through the FCC, quickly making its name as the most connected Vertu model to date.
