Vertu Ascent Strawberry
Nokia's luxury division Vertu today announced a limited run of its already rare Ascent luxury cellphone. The Special Edition Strawberry and Cream models add a unique perforated leather back in either a cream or strawberry color to match the preferred desert of the upcoming summer.
Either shares the same luxuries as the pioneering Ascent, such as the custom, toughened Liquidmetal alloy, a high-powered 20mm Yamaha speaker, and a scratchproof sapphire-coated LCD. Pricing as always is unlisted for the phones, which should be available in Vertu's worldwide shops by June. [via Sybarites]
