Thread: Vertu: how much does it cost?

    Default Vertu: how much does it cost?

    was at paragon last week and saw the Vertu phones. they look gorgeous and definitely expensive... I understand that the keypads are embedded with precious jewels and i'm just wondering if it's worth the moola?

    iirc, are their model are tested to function after car run over them.

    also, they ever interview some owner as to why they buy such $$$$ phone. reason is simple enough, they are busy making money, no time to spend on playing games, sms, mms, surfing net or taking pictures with the phone. what they need is a phone that doesnt fail. like the nikon f4 and fm2 camera etc.

    will you send your vertu for verification?

    or does the jewels come with certifications?

    It should come with certifications... since they elaborate the amount and carats of the jewels on the website... i won't think sending for verification is necessary as it will void the warranty as they will have to open up the case to see.

    Vertu is a class of its own i think. i think Vertu is targeted at high post executives.
