Vertu launches the world’s most expensive Symbian handset

Luxury handset maker Vertu has come up with a new handset called the Vertu Constellation which is said to be a luxurious Symbian handset. The price range of the handset can make you shell out anything from £4,000 to £10,000.
According to sources the new Constellation, which features a ruby surround on its camera and a sapphire crystal screen, will sell from €4,400 in ‘Satin Brown’ to €10,900 in ‘Red Gold Mixed Metals’. The version of Symbian OS is not mentioned so we presume it might be Anna or maybe even Belle.
