Vertu TI luxury mobile launched in India

May 24th, 2013

So there are simple phones and there are smartphones. Oh wait, there are also premium smartphones and then there are luxury phones. But how do you define a luxury phone? Well a Titanium body and a sapphire crystal screen would sure make the cut.

That’s exactly what the new luxury phone Vertu TI has. The new smartphone by luxury mobile maker Vertu has been launched in India at a price of (Believe it or not) Rs 6,49,990.
For those who are still reading this, the Vertu TI is equipped with a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone also has 64GB of internal storage and an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video capability as well as a 1.3MP front camera.

The display of this luxury phone is 3.7-inch WVGA screen and runs the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system which has been customized by Vertu to provide a new user interface.
Talk about the luxury of it, the Vertu TI is made of 184 individual parts crafted specially by Vertu’s craftsmen in England. The body of the phone as mentioned earlier is made of Grade 5 Titanium and the screen of the smartphone is made of sapphire crystal which gives it scratch-proof quality and four times higher strength than any other smartphone.
Like the saying goes, you just can’t put a price on some things. It is yet to be seen whether this phone is one of those things.

Nokia Asha 501 unveiled

May 22nd, 2013

The latest budget range phone Asha 501 by Nokia has been unveiled for the emerging markets such as Indian and Latin America. It sports a 3-inch touch screen and is available in numerous vibrant colors, all at a price of $99!

Anybody would guess, this phone wouldn’t appeal to people who have been using premium smartphones but it sure takes its looks from Nokia’s Lumia range of premium handsets. The phone is equipped with the Asha operating system and features a grid of application icons similar to iOS. Among the installed apps are some essentials such as Facebook and Twitter.
The Asha 501 uses a plastic casing, so it can actually be changed quite easily in case it’s damaged or you’re simply bored of it. (Girls would surely love to switch colors to match their outfit.)
The downside is that the phone uses only 2G networks and thus the users wouldn’t be able to access high speed internet. In other words, this phone is designed specifically for countries such as India where 2G networks have a larger user base.
Overall, this phone would a fine smartphone upgrade for someone who has been using basic phones. Another feature, as some would call it, is the sturdiness and strong build quality of the 501 which can most likely withstand a few mild falls quite easily.
The phone is likely to be launched in India in June 2013 while UK would get it in the 3rd quarter of 2013. Given the low features and lack of 3G and 4G network compatibility, the phone may not see a US launch.
For those of you who do plan to get your hands on one of these, try out the Nimbuzz application on the Asha 501 to stay connected on various social platforms. Source: http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/nokia-asha-501/4505-6454_7-35757120.html
