Luxury smartphone manufacturer Vertu is now owned by Godin Holdings, a Hong Kong-based fund, along with "international private investors." Vertu's phones are handmade in England, offering premium materials combined with expert craftsmanship and a round-the-clock Concierge service for last-minute travel arrangements, hotel bookings, and much more.
Following the deal, CEO Massimiliano Pogliani is stepping down after three years at the helm. The manufacturer will retain its operations and manufacturing facility at Hampshire, UK, where it employs 450 people. While Vertu's phones are available for as low as $6,900, customers have the option of customizing the handsets with bespoke colors and leather choices, which rack up the price significantly.

Unless you have a fancy ride with a built-in phone charger, you probably need a good car phone mount or docking solution. One that can charge your phone wirelessly? Even better. One that you can use to control your phone hands-free via Amazon's Alexa? Even better-er! That's what the iOttie Aivo Connect promises, but does it deliver?
