Vertu is a name that had been around for many years before the company filed for bankruptcy about a year ago. The problem for Vertu is that it catered to a crowd of wealthy individuals that could drop $10,000 on a smartphone with specifications that were often mediocre; and that is a very small market. Vertu is back with a smartphone that is much cheaper than its past offerings called the Vertu Aster P. This device is on pre-order in China right now for 35,800 Chinese yuan, which works out to a bit over $5,100 when converted, with a ship date of October 30. That is a lot of money in a world where people complain about an iPhone selling for over $1,000. Apple is famous for its design and style,... Read more...
The reason phone cases are so popular is because these convenient smartphone devices that everyone owns are inconveniently expensive if you should drop or otherwise ruin one. Some of the higher end handsets can retail for $650 or more, though compared to some of the handsets sold by Vertu, a luxury phone maker that hand assembles handsets in England, $650 would be a bargain. That's certainly true of Vertu's updated Signature Touch. Priced at £6,500 (around $9,900 in U.S. currency) and above, the Signature Touch is Vertu's latest high performance smartphone. It boasts a 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p display (428 ppi), Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, microSD card... Read more...
Apple likes to tout that it's iPhone 5 features diamond-cut beveled edges and other fancy amenities, but when you're talking about luxury phones, Vertu is a name that quickly comes to mind. One of Vertu's newest creations is the Vertu Ti, which is powered by Android, driven by a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, and is the company's fastest handset to date. The casing is crafted from grade 5 titanium, a material Vertu chose for its strength, low weight, and overall elegance. It's about five times strong than other smartphones, Vertu says. It also has a 3.7-inch display, a size that seems rather pedestrian next to today's 4-inch and even 5-inch handsets, but the beauty is in the material. Vertu uses... Read more...
Vertu, a former subsidiary of Nokia and maker of luxury smartphones with extravagant price tags, is back at it, this time with a device that runs 7,900 euros (around $10,600). The new Vertu Ti attempts to justify its price tag with a titanium frame and sapphire screen, along with polished ceramic and black leather accents, all hand-crafted from 184 parts. The name and signature of the person who built is inscribed to the inside lid of the SIM card holder. The hardware specs are a little less obscene. It has a 3.7-inch touchscreen display, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 64GB of internal storage, 8MP rear-facing camera with autofocus and twin LED flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and various other...

LucidLogix sure has been making waves this year. The company's making even more of that with their newest announcement, one that involves a partnership with MSI to bring Lucid Virtu support to MSI Z68 motherboards. Z68 seems to be all the rage these days, referencing Intel's first chipsets to natively support USB 3.0. And now with this, these mainboards will also support mix-and-match GPU arragements. The two companies have worked together before, and now the partnership is springing forward to a new level. MSI will have a complete lineup of Z68 based mainboards with Virtu technology. All based on MSI's renowned Military Class II components, like Z68A-GD80(B3), MSI's mainboard with three way... Read more...
