Vertu takes luxury phones on a picnic

'Strawberry' and 'Cream' special editions

Sybarites

Those who are familiar with Vertu may associate it with Ferraris and $310,000 serpent handsets . But the luxury phone maker has a casual side too, and it's ready to celebrate summertime with strawberries and cream. The "Strawberry" and "Cream" phones are accented with perforated leather made to feel like the surface of the seasonal fruit, in respective pink and cream hues. Sybarites did not disclose a price for these special editions of the "Ascent" line, but we'll keep an eye out at the kiosks of our local mall. It may take awhile.
