Just a note to the GSMArena, in the description it says sapphire crystal COATING, and there is no such thing(there is, however it its an obsolete tehnology used by SEIKO corp. in the past and it's not used today), sapphire crystal is a type of glass made of artificial sapphire, and on the Verty site it says : 3.5” nHD high contrast AMOLED display, PROTECTED BY Sapphire Crystal.
Expensive phone, but with a philanthropic's heart. Love the idea of donating a portion of sales to a worthy cause. If luxury phone makers did more of this, I think we'd see less grumbling about their prices. Sure, only a small portion of the economy can afford this, and with the melt down currently in the Euro zone... an even smaller portion than usual. Still, for those that can, you get a cool looking phone, and you can feel a bit smug when your friends say, "You spent how much for a phone?" Just tell them, it's OK, it was for charity. ;)
looks nice but is a rubbish phone why dont they start with a decent phone then put the bling on who wants to buy a c7 these days
what a gorgeous looking phone...if only i have the money to get me a vertu phone...very beautiful...

Stick with your out of date expensive toy, i'd rather take the so called 'plastic' flexibility knowing I'll get my money's worth from the performance and from a decent up to date OS that's already been given an OTA update than from a dinosaur like Belle with no promise of an update. Stop kidding yourself about Nokia and WP7, you are in the minority and the sales figures would seem to agree that going hiring Elop, an MS agent, was the first mistake. The second was going on an OS that has yet to prove itself, WP8 will be pretty much their last gamble.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2012Aagigigi...android!...does that OS sounds for you powerfull...lol. This childish android boys... moreWho's having the last laugh now, Belle is pretty much without a future on a dead platform with no guarantee to an update to Carla if that ever bears fruition. Whilst the cause is noble to help sick children, only the few with deep pockets and no idea about OS's can keep this one, more money than brains but at least for a worthy cause.
I actually like the design of this device and Belle is good. Not bad Vertu.
Most people don't realize that you get Free Concierge (Forgot how to spell it) service for life with the vertu line of phones. I wouldn't mind getting my own private room at a hotel for free. Or using the special VIP section free of charge.
I need to read the complete article to see how much this device costs. I know it's up there.
sesha, 13 Jun 2012there is no mention about the os probably android I think soAagigigi...android!...does that OS sounds for you powerfull...lol.
This childish android boys thought that is powerfull os by puting quadcore cpu and other oversized parts heheh, quadcore? half of it is not functional, it's just warming up to cook supe on it lol.
That's a novel way to sell those hideous looking and over priced cell phones. Cheap marketing gimmick.
how can you still say something bad about this it's not about how it looks it's what the phone is made of if I had the money I would rather buy this than a SIII and do you honestly think nokia would use android
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2012Ugliest mobile ever seen in my life.. who cares!no $ no talk
@licquour, 13 Jun 2012the os is just symbian... belle...That's great, since it's really powerful OS!
