Introducing the New $10,000 Android Smartphone ‘Vertu Ti’
It’s a match that doesn’t make sense at first glance. On the one hand is the ultra-expensive line of Vertu phones. On the other is the down to earth, open source approach of Android. But if you want to belong to both- be free and still want your luxuries, then you need to look no further than the Vertu Ti. In a clear indication that the company is tuned into global demands, Vertu has partnered with Android and created this lovely looking device.
At first glance, you’re struck by its sheer good looks. Here’s a phone that comes with leather accents on a polished titanium case. And the screen is sapphire crystal, making it most resistant to scratches and dangers of that sort.
But the phone isn’t just about looks. No, if it had been then it would never have been able to justify the price tag. The phone handles impact better than other smartphones, making it rugged and durable. The case is titanium which makes it strong enough to play a stick game with and certainly stronger than anything that’s out there. The screen is 3.7 inches in size. The phone comes with customer service and data protection so you can rest assured.
What runs the phone is standard. You have the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, 64GB internal memory, 1.7 Dual Core Snapdragon S4 processor and NFC. The main camera is an 8 megapixel with twin LED flash and auto focus, the secondary camera is a standard 1.3MP that you can Skype with. So it’s decent, but it’s not great. Certainly nothing that you wouldn’t get at in a much less costing phone.
But if you’re quibbling about technology, then this is not the phone for you. Vertu has never been about cutting edge technology. It is a brand name that you cannot take lightly and it is about a one-of-a-kind product that leaves disposable phones biting the dust.
Sure enough, the phone offers something truly special. The Concierge Services is what it’s called. This is having your own personal assistant, available to you at your beck and call, at the press of a button. Whether it’s dinner at a restaurant, a special gift that absolutely has to be hand delivered on a particular day or that one of a kind hotel you’ve always wanted to vacation at, there’s a person who’ll do it all for you. Talk about being spoilt rotten!
What makes the phone exclusive is the fact that each phone is handmade by just one single craftsman in the company’s headquarters in England. If you think the $10,000 price tag is too low, don’t fret. You always have a choice of upgrading to the titanium red gold mixed metal, that’ll burn an additional $10,000 hole in your pocket. Don’t say luxury can’t get more luxurious.
The Vertu Ti is meant for people who like to flaunt their devices and who travel in some pretty exclusive circles. Buy, if you think you fit in.
