Vertu: Much More Expensive Phones For Fewer Diamond Encrusted Features
from the sign-me-up dept
You may remember Vertu, the Nokia spinoff that is trying to be the “Rolex of mobile phones” by offering insanely high priced gold or diamond encrusted mobile phones for “splurging millionaires.” Well, not only are you spending more than a small car might cost (the original Vertu phones were around $20,000), you’re getting less advanced technology. That’s right, just like fine-wine, Vertu believes that important technology enhancements take time, and they don’t want to rush them into their diamond encrusted phones until everyone is already onto the next big thing. So, if you’re buying from the new line of Vertu phones (much cheaper than the originals at only $4,000 or so), don’t expect such “advanced features” as Bluetooth, MMS or a camera phone.

If they want to sell more phones, they will need to build a better website. It took me about 20 clicks just to find a picture of ONE phone. People with this kind of money don’t get it from just sitting around clicking on random links…
RE: Terrible website
Oh and they need a better server:

I wonder when Nokia will make the “Bling-Bling” N-Gage. I know their executives are thinking, “Hmmm, two wrongs MUST make a right”.
– “For the side-talking millionaire in your life.”
Ooh, I wonder if I can copyright that phrase?

You do however get free upgrades for life so when they add bluetooth early next year you just send your phone back and they send you a new one at no cost.
there are people dying on the earth and some idiotic millionaires buy these stupid phones? talk about apathetic.
