The British luxury cell phone maker Vertu, has introduced another member to its portfolio of ultra expensive limited edition devices. The company has once again partnered with Ferrari to release the Ascent Ferrari GT handset. Inspired by the famous Italian cars, the Vertu Ascent Ferrari GT is built from forged titanium with a matte black PVD finish.
The red and black hand sewn leather that forms the cover is the same source as Ferrari’s interiors. The side of the phone features an enameled representation of Ferrari’s iconic engine block whilst the battery cover is ceramic. The handset comes with a rather small 2-inch QVGA display with 16 million colors, which is protected by sapphire crystal glass. It boasts a 5-megapixel camera with integrated LED flash and video recording capabilities, as well as high-performance dual hands-free loudspeaker.
Other key features of the feature-phone include: auto dual-time zone clock, Audio/Video player, Torch function, 32GB of internal memory, built-in A-GPS navigation with preloaded maps, as well as quadband WCDMA and GSM for worldwide coverage. Further, the device incorporates Vertu Feeds application delivering, City Brief Guides, Vertu Select exclusive content, Vertu Fortress secure back up service and the Worldmate Travel application.
Apparently, only 2011 units of the Vertu Ascent Ferrari GT will be manufactured. The pricing details of this beauty are unclear, but considering it’s a Vertu branded with Ferrari, it will be expensive.
