Everyone knows that Vertu churns out cell phones that are way too expensive for the man on the street, despite carrying specifications that are not exactly high end in nature. The latest rumor to make the rounds would be Vertu, being a subsidiary of Nokia, where it is said to come with the Windows Phone operating system.

According to @UVStaska’s tweet, Vertu had started to toy with the idea of using Symbian in their handsets, where the E72 inspired model in Vertu styling (the Vertu Constellation Quest) is an example. Now that Nokia has more or less dropped support for the Symbian operating system in their future higher-end models, what do you think the Vertu platform will rely on?

Perhaps Windows Phone might be an alternative, and if this is true, then we would be on the receiving end of a touchscreen-enabled Vertu – which is a first, in many ways. What do you think?
