Luxury smartphone maker, Vertu, has been sold to Baferton, a company registered in Cyprus. Baferton is owned by Turkish exile Hakan Uzan, who has been involved with a number of legal controversies.
This is reportedly Microsoft's new 'Surface Pro' tablet
Vertu has introduced a new handset to their line that offers some of the best specifications to date. The 'Signature Touch' will start at $9000 and offer a Snapdragon 810, 4GB RAM and a 21MP camera.
Having unveiled its first new handset since its split from Nokia, an Android 4.0 device, Vertu has confirmed that it considered using Windows Phone 8, but rejected it due to issues of 'complexity'.
If you happen to be absolutely rolling in money, perhaps the new $10,000 Vertu Ti will tickle your fancy: it's an Android device with a 3.7-inch sapphire-protected screen and titanium body.
Vertu's first post-Nokia device has been spotted: an Android 4.0.4 handset sporting typically divisive styling. But will the Vertu Ti be worth the thousands of dollars it's expected to cost?
Nokia has completed the sale of Vertu, the luxury phone brand that became a byword for mobile bling. But will it switch from Symbian to Android, or could there yet be a Vertu Windows Phone?
In a stock exchange release, Nokia announced it will eliminate 10,000 positions and make several key changes to its overall strategy, including an emphasis on location-based services.
A new report claims that Nokia is close to announcing that its Vertu luxury phone division will be sold off to Swedish private-equity firm EQT Partners AB for about $250 million.
Nokia is said to be in advanced talks with a private equity group to sell its Vertu luxury handset division, as the company continues to restructure and offload its non-core assets.
