Well well, Nokia's ritzy and flashy Vertu subsidiary finally has a competitor! Jokes aside, this new Vertu-logoed clone looks decent, but definitely is not up to par (from images, anyway) to the real deal. While we love smaller-sized Vertu knockoffs, this time around the larger "semi-lookalike" handset smacks of real Vertu design. However, it does not resemble any publicly known Vertu handset. Still, the Vertu logo is stamped on this baby and telltale yet subtle signs of it being a Vertu handset are woven in there as well. Tech details include a QVGA touchscreen, no physical keypad, stereo speakers, microSD slot and a 4 megapixel cam. Throw in a 2,000 mAh battery and this is one phone with major-league specs. Except that it's not a Vertu.

Re: Keepin' it real fake, part LVI: plastic Vertu semi-knockoff
Interesting stuff. I, myself, am the proud owner of a Vertu knock-off (bought from lux-replica-phones.com) and can say one thing - you can spend a dozen G's to get a real Vertu (i.e. throw your money away IMO) or you can go for a fake for a few hundred bucks and enjoy the same stuff the real one has to offer (except the Concierge service; who needs it anyway).
The blog entry mentions PDA-like phones branded as Vertu - now that's nonsense. Everybody knows that Vertu phones have never had touch-screen PDA-like phones, especially looking as 'plastic' as the one in the pic.
I wonder what the full specifications are, though. Anyone got the link to the model?
