Vertu Ti: A $10,000 Android phone that runs ICS, lacks 4G support

Vertu, the company known for its lavish and ridiculously expensive phones, has announced its first Android phone named the Vertu Ti. The Ti is a luxury phone made up of top-notch materials that give the build quality a pristine touch and feel, as the chassis is constructed out of titanium, and the screen is fashioned from sapphire crystal. Vertu is expecting users to splurge $10,000 for the Ti.

Under the hood brings some more than adequate features such as an unnamed 1.7GHz dual-core processor as the engine, an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, as well as a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 3.7-inch WVGA screen, 64GB of storage and pentaband DC-HSDPA connectivity. What’s unimpressive about the phone is the year-old skinned Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powering the software side of things. The Vertu Ti also carries a tiny 1,250mAh battery, as well as sound “punctuated by the London Symphony Orchestra.”

Perhaps the biggest advantage with buying a handset from Vertu is getting its concierge call service to help out with things like local advice and restaurant booking. If you think about it, it’s the old-fashioned version of Google Now.

It doesn’t take much for us to know that 10 grand for a phone that doesn’t run the latest Android operating system, nor is capable of 4G LTE connectivity is a bit over the top. But if you’re rich and have nothing to do with your money besides blow it on frivolous stuff like this, then by all means cop it.
