Vertu the luxury smartphone maker with HQ in Church Crookham, Hampshire, have released their first Android device, named the Vertu Ti. Our illustrious Editor-in-Chief would like one of these beauties but, we think he will have to do a lot of groveling to be able to have this in his pocket.
The device has a titanium frame coupled with a sapphire screen but is not 4G enabled. Powered by a dual-core 1.7 GHz running Android 4.0, 1GB ram and 64GB internal memory, 8mp rear camera with 1080p HD video, 1.3 front camera facing with Skype compliant video calling. The sound in delivered by Bang & Olufsen.
So just how much molar would you have to shell out for this, hold onto your hats boys and girls as the price is £6994 (€7900)
Chief executive Perry Oosting said in an interview with the BBC:
“Vertu had chosen Android over Windows as an operating system because it was more established, You need to be part of an ecosystem, Your device will have to integrate with other devices. I think the Windows phone will have success but it is still a relatively small market share. At the moment it doesn’t have the global reach of Android – which is about 60% of the market.”
