FrontRunners: Looks to Boot

<< Back to Robb Report, May 2013

    Every bit as fashionable as previous models, the new Vertu Ti mobile phone (www.vertu.com) is even more functional. It is equipped with the Android 4.0 operating system and has a 1.7 GHz processor, a 1.3-megabyte Skype-capable camera, and 64 gigabytes of internal memory. This is Vertu’s first model since the manufacturer split from its parent company, Nokia, last fall. The Ti features a titanium case (Ti is the periodic table symbol for titanium), a 3.7-inch sapphire-crystal screen, and optional red-gold or black-leather accents. Prices range from $9,600 to nearly $20,000 for the red-gold version.
