Nokia is working on new Vertu smartphone

Nokia has been busy the last few months since it landed a new CEO. The company has shunned Android, one of the most popular mobile operating systems and instead went with Windows Phone, one of the least popular operating systems around. The company is also hurting badly and has axed a large number of workers, and moved Symbian off to another firm.

Vertu Constellation Ayxta $7k+ cellphone gets unboxed

Vertu Constellation Ayxta $7k+ cellphone gets unboxed

What does over $7k's worth of cellphone get you?  If you're looking at the Vertu Constellation Ayxta then the answer is plenty of stainless steel, leather, a 2.4-inch HVGA display and the sort of functionality you'd be able to find on a basic Nokia.  That's because the Constellation Ayxta falls under Nokia's "luxury" wing, and now we know of at least one person who has bought one, Drew over at Gear Diary.

LG planning iPhone rival in Q4; new PRADA and Vertu-rival after

LG have revealed their plans to launch a number of new luxury phones, including a new PRADA design, which they hope will help usurp Samsung from their number two cellphone maker in the world position.  According to LG’s mobile business president, Ahn Seung-kwon, the current number three is aiming to step up by 2012, and one of their first steps in doing so will be releasing a new "Black Label" series phone in Q4 2009 to take on Apple's iPhone 3GS.

So, for those of you that don’t know, Vertu does a really good job of applying “themes” to their handsets whenever they release them, the theme for the Ascent Ti is from high performance sports cars. I have never seen a sports car made out of Titanium, but this phone is.

That is nice; since this $6300 handset is something you will probably want to las you for a while. I don’t think there is anywhere that this phone won’t work either, it has 3G UMTS, Quad-band GSM, and CDMA, so if there is any type of cellular coverage, you should be able to make a call.

Ferrari-theme for Vertu’s latest cellphone

Currently it seems like you're nobody in the celebrity world if you're not driving - and crashing - Bugatti Veyron's or Ferrari Enzo's, but if you fancy a prancing horse (not literally, of course) and can't quite afford the sticker price of a four-wheeled variant then how about Vertu's latest limited-edition super-phone?

New in excessively luxurious phones with no apparent added functionality besides blinding people with their sparkly gemstones, is the Vertu Signature Cobra. Crafted by French jeweler, Boucheron, the ritzy phone features one pear-cut diamond, one round white diamond, two emerald eyes, and 439 rubies.

IMHO this phone looks awfully hiddeous, but commands a price tag of $310,000. And, with a limited production of 26, only a ‘lucky’ few will be able to get one.
