Vertu departed from Nokia last year & recently teamed up with Google to develop Android-running luxury handset which is called Vertu TI. This is highly expensive device in market with most competitive edition that is priced at $10,000. Earlier Vertu phones were running in team work with Nokia’s old-fashioned Symbian software and the company revealed that it was keen to update the software. Nokia currently ventures on Microsoft’s platform but Vertu’s public relations head Jon Stanley marked that Android was advised to Windows Phone, considering that it gives a richer mobile ecosystem and broader chances for customization. Nokia, after selling owns a 10% holding in Vertu, but the earlier owner revealed that it has no role in any making processes or business activities.
