Vertu announces limited edition TI devices, only 1,000 of each will be made
The red and blue are a departure from the current line of black options featuring specific accents of alligator or gold. These luxury handsets are not spec-monsters by any standard nowadays. The appeal of a Vertu beyond its exclusive hardware is the concierge service that is available to accommodate every whim and wish of the owner 24/7.
For those that need to know though, the Ti features a 3.7-inch 800x480 display with a sapphire crystal instead of glass. There is an 8MP autofocus camera, and 64GB of storage on board. The Ti is a quad-band GSM smartphone with HSPA+ data up to 42Mbps, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and NFC. Powering the whole thing is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU tuned to 1.7GHz and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
To become an owner of one of these exclusive limited edition Ti devices, just find a dealer and be ready to pay about €8,900 ($11,700) for the privilege of owning one. The concierge service starts at about a couple thousand per year. Big spenders get their own dedicated concierge agent.

I don't know but making a latest hardware in this kind of expensive luxurious device is that hard?

There is iPhone 5 Gold out there too.
Atleast iPhones aren't ugly.

Yeah I can't understand why these phones are always multiple years behind in technology. A 32GB iPhone 5 or Galaxy S4 cost only around $600-750 new and those blow these out of the water. They're not even cool as a status symbol... "Hey, look at my ugly $11,000 phone. It's screen is smaller than an iPhone 5! Better yet, it runs Android from nearly years ago!"
