    Thanks to the English mobile-phone maker’s first-ever touchscreen, the Vertu Constellation (www.vertu.com) offers easier access to Vertu’s concierge services. The 3.5-inch high-definition AMOLED display, protected by a layer of sapphire crystal, can be used to request private-club access, private-security details, and advice from such experts as wine merchant Berry Bros. & Rudd. Launched in October, the Constellation is priced from $5,600 to $13,800 (for the red-gold edition).
