Just a few weeks ago, we heard Vertu was planning on delivering an Android-powered smartphone that was going to be ridiculously expensive. It was originally expected to retail for a little over $4000, but we guess that wasn’t a high enough number for Vertu as they’re announcing their new handset, the Ti, will retail starting at $10,000.
We know you can probably think of a lot of ways to burn $10,000, but let’s run through the specs of the Vertu Ti. First off, the Ti will run on Android 4.0, which by that spec alone should drop the price substantially as it’s an old version of the Android OS. The Ti will come with a 3.7-inch WVGA screen and dual core Snapdragon S4 processor.
Alright – the Vertu Ti’s innards aren’t that impressive, but the Ti is handmade and is encased in titanium and has a sapphire crystal display. Also, you’ll have a 24-hour concierge service available to you, which we know you’ll probably end up using it to hand deliver your pizzas to you at all hours of the day.
