We don’t know exactly why, but rich people tend to have attention seeking disorders that push them to do reckless and, well, stupid things. Like buying million-dollar sports cars that they don’t know how to drive, diamond watches they end up not wearing because they’re too heavy or humongous vacation houses they only visit once every decade.
Or tacky, grotesque and repulsive “exclusive” smartphones made out of god-awful luxurious materials. One of these gadgets that will never end up in the hands of a sane person is the Vertu Ti.
Powered by the already dusty and dated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a pretty run-of-the-mill 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260A CPU, you might think this fellow won’t cost more than 400 bucks. Well, you’re not too far off the real number and you only need to add one more zero.
That’s right, Vertu is planning to sell this monstrosity for $4,000. Does it cook dinner for that money? Of course not, but it will probably be made out of stainless steel, real leather or something like that. And weigh like two pounds. What a joke! But hey, if you can rip off
idiots eccentric folks and get away with it, I say go for it!
