Vertu is at it again, producing high-status handsets for people with more money than brain cells. We’ve covered the Vertu Signature Duo handset and the Vertu Racetrack Legends phones recently, but even they seem like a bargain compared to the Vertu Signature Cobra and Vertu Python.
The new handsets are a joint venture with jewellery designers Boucheron. The specifications are nothing to brag about, so we’re left with the looks. For $310,000, you can pick up the Cobra, covered in one pear-cut diamond, one round one, two emeralds, and 439 rubies. Just eight have been made, so hurry!
A little much for you? Well, how about the Python, a comparative snip at $115,000. 26 of these on the market, but sadly, no rubies this time. If you’re tempted by either, perhaps you need to think about a donation to charity.
