Vertu can testify to a market for high-price handsets with an average specification – just as long as the branding and look is right. And that’s definitely the case with the Porsche Design P’9521 handset.
This aluminium clamshell knows its market – even offering fingerprint technology to lock your phone. And there’s fingerprint-specific speed dialling if you want to take it further. Other than that, you get a 3.2MP camera (with autofocus and two-LED flash), a 1GB miniSD card and Bluetooth. A Wi-Fi model should follow next year.
The initial model is set to arrive in limited quantities in late August. Try Harrods if you want one – and make sur4e you have £815 in your pocket.
