Nokia spin-off plans $10,000 'luxury' Android phone

Vertu logoIf you were planning to drop several thousands of dollars on a "luxury smartphone," what operating system would you insist such an elite device rock?

According to one Russian blogger claiming knowledge of British snobphone maker Vertu's plans, the company -- which was once a division of Nokia before the company sold all but 10 percent of it last year -- is looking to launch a fancy Android phone starting at 3,000 euros and running as high as $10,000 if you want a model made from unobtainium or some such silliness, I suppose.

Good thing Vertu didn't have to pay more for the operating system, or this line of phones might have been really expensive. (Like Android, the sarcasm is free.)

Murtazin says to expect the device in the second half of this year, but few other details are available. Engadget believes the first Android phone from Vertu will be equipped with Android 4.0.4, an 800x480 display, a 1.5GHz processor, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.

Hopefully the butler who operates it for you is also included in the price.
