What do you get when you combine the preeminent English luxury phone maker with the preeminent English luxury car maker? You get Vertu for Bentley. Yes, Vertu, the company that doesn't make a smartphone that retails for less than $5,000, has teamed up with Bentley, the company that doesn't make a car that retails for less than $170,000. The first fruits of this relationship come in the form of the Vertu Bentley Signature Touch, a phone that already cost of $10,000 before being adorned with the Bentley logo on its leathery chin.
But then again, if you've dropped $200,000 on a new base model Bentley Continental GTC… well, let's not kid ourselves, nobody who buys a Bentley buys a base model. But if you happen to have a car in your garage that costs more than most houses do, then you might just be the type to consider a Vertu Bentley Signature Touch.
We just hope you aren't concerned with how much this phone will cost you, because it's not cheap. £10,700, to be specific, though we don't have an availability date more specific than "October 2014" (which is already nearly half gone). But they're certain that this five-year partnership with Bentley will "appeal to our mutual customers' desire for sophistication, craftsmanship and precision engineering."
The question is, how much does an Android 4.4 KitKat-powered phone with a 4.7-inch 1080p sapphire-fronted display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3Ghz quad-core processor, 13MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera, 64GB of storage, LTE, NFC, and Qi charging gain when it's wearing both Vertu and Bentley branding?
