Luxury smartphone company Vertu has just released the Vertu Ti, the price of which is not listed on its website but was reported by Alex Dobie of Android Central to be $10,000. It runs a version of the Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich, which is more than a year old, and lacks other typical high-end smartphone features like 4G wireless Internet.

In other words, it's a "show off" device. The only people that would buy this are the ones that want to show off their wealth.

I would imagine some people would buy just because of the concierge service.
