A bit disappointed with Vertu's sense of style. I am a Vertu user, I have the Signature Black and love it, but the constellation series have been a big disappointment. Vertu's try at the flip phone was a bit think and bulky, then their smartphone turned out to be an E73, but with the same form factor. Now this, I am not sure they will get far . Lets see, I hope I am wrong.
Judging from Tizen Takeover's comment mine was deleted... over what? Me complimenting on Vertu's taste or criticizing the haters of Vertu's phones? I don't see any reason why my comment should be deleted, but let me repeat myself: These phones are the elite. They're not for everyone but these phones are in a league of their so it shouldn't be of a surprise.
just been sent prices
The polished pink and polished black stainless steel variants cost £4,300
The brushed satin finish, stainless steel, brown leather costs £3,900

Is a Bentley the best car in the world ? Nope. Do I want one? Absolutely. Its about craftsmenship and materials not spec. Casio G-Shock or Rolex ? the Casio is more accurate but I know which one I want.So live and let live Guys its not worth getting your knickers in a bunch about .

I proved my point that Artist buy what's hot at the moment. By you naming all of those 500 songs, you'll only be proving my point even more. Rare Exotic cars that artists buy and merchandise that companies pay the artist to wear are whats hot at the moment. Why do you think Skinny Jeans are on most artists now? Why do you not see any artists buying Lamborghini Countach's and Diablo's anymore as opposed to mostly all of them buying Gallardo's and Murcielago's? Because it's whats hot at the moment. Countach's and Diablo's are still Rare Exotic cars but they are not whats hot at the moment. Skinny Jeans were a Rocker thing waaaayyyyy back and they wore them because they were hot at that time. Why do you think most top rockers have Sunburst Les Paul designed guitars? Because it's whats hot and they know it gives great Grunge sound that other guitars just can't get due to the wood that Les Paul guitars are made of.
Fact is, you were wrong and stereotypical. You have been proven wrong and now are trying to dig yourself out of the hole you put yourself into. Just leave it alone and move on.
Vertu makes greatly designed phones. Spec wise, they may not be top of the heap but design wise, they are almost unparalleled.
The design may need to change.. It looks like something from the Star Wars...

I can tell you 500 rap songs about Cartier watches, Bentleys, custom diamond accessories and gold on sneekers. All of which are not hot, but exclusive.
You do realize that alot companies pay artists huge money to make subliminal advertizing on their songs and videos for normal products?
You don't any tech research to find Vertu or Meridian phones. You can buy them at Jacob´s and other hi end shops. Specially the ones that sell diamonds and jewelry.
But you do need to do some tech research to find actually good phones at normal shops and carriers.
Get a clue...
[deleted post]Agreed Sun Down. These are some really hot designed devices. Vertu always use the top of the top materials to make their devices as elegant as ever. Sure they are expensive but these are nice as is the Vertu Python and Constellation. Vertu also makes a phone that is made from the same heat inducted material that is used in Nasa Spacecraft

Yeah, VERY rare and exotic indeed.
You just got off subject of stating the obvious about them buying cars that are rare because you're envious of their fortune and couldn't think of a reasonable argument to back up your claim. I just proved my point 3 times and there are MANY more to back up mine. This subject is about Vertu (a subsidiary of Nokia) "*PHONES*" not cars and in the world of phones, Rappers and Ballers buy whats hot. They mostly don't dven know about Vertu as they don't have the time for tech research.
Now go do some of your own before trying to make stereotypical claims on stuff you have no clue about.
obviously runs symbian. People with that kind of money need security and privacy, so android, I os and windows are out then !
Tizen Takeover, 19 Oct 2011Money also cant buy common sense which you seem to be lacking.
These phones are only for th... moreRappers and ballers don't buy what's hot. The buy what is unique and rare. The buy exotic cars, luxury phones and custom made clothes. They don't want to be one in the crowd. They want to stand out because most of them had very little when they grew up and now they want to flaunt it.
Before attacking and accusing someone about common sense, maybe you should first have some of your own and know what you talking about.
[deleted post]exactly, you got that right son. these phones are definitely NOT for me. even If i were given one as a present I'd sell it on ebay without even opening the packaging and then get a REAL fully functional device such as Galaxy Nexus
I wouldn't mind having one. That would mean I had so much money that I ran out of tasteful expensive things to buy and had to turn to Vertus.
