Concept phone might be too weird even for Vertu

Luxury handset design is a seven-sided wonder.

Vertu is one luxury phone maker that's not afraid to take risks, as evidenced by such creations as its $310,000 "Signature Cobra" handset. But with competition in that space growing all the time, real or fake, it behooves the company to stay on the cutting edge.

That's why designer Christopher Tak Cheung Yue has proposed a phone that takes some new angles--seven of them, to be exact. The seven-sided "Vertu Suave" concept, which BornRich describes as a "classy balance of angular and organic shape," is aimed specifically at female consumers with casings made of gold, titanium, and a sheepskin backing. It's definitely eye-catching, but it somehow looks like the sole of a shoe to us.
