luxury handset maker Vertu’s shift to Android OS for the firm’s new smartphone is a logical, not to mention practical move that Scrooge McDuckian elites can rejoice to. in the event that the opulent ego in you is screaming for more exclusivity, Vertu has something more elite installed for you: the Vertu Ti Ferrari Limited Edition Smartphone. under the hood, expect the same features as the Vertu Ti such as dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, a 3.7 WVGA touchscreen with sapphire crystal, 64GB internal storage, 8MP autofocus main shooter with twin LED flash, 1.3MP Skype-compliant front camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC, plus the usual servings of sensors and radios.
however, those are just ‘standard issue’ cos’ the real exclusivity of this F12berlinetta-inspired luxe smartphone comes in form of exclusive Ferrari GT leather (stitched, no less), engineered lightweight titanium case as standard, exclusive iconic rev counter clock with matching wallpapers, pre-loaded Ferrari app offering aggregated news and exclusive insider articles, a Ferrari F12berlinetta visualizer app, and Ferrari engine sound ringtones tuned in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen. as elite as it is, it will still be running on the older Android 4.0 ICS and the handset is of course, handmade in England. the Vertu Ti Ferrari Limited Edition Smartphone will be available to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, as well as Australia. as for the price, it is now retailing in Singapore for a whopping 20,800 SGD (that’s about US$16,360).
only 2013 numbered sets (presumably to coincide with the year) of the Vertu Ti Ferrari Limited Edition Smartphone will be made available. head past the jump for a few more detail look.
