Vertu gets some competition: another $19,000 platinum cellphone on the way

So a name isn't listed for it, there are no photos or specs, and the news was announced on a website  geared towards precious metals traders, but apparently some Chinese cellphone manufacturer is doing a limited-edition of 500 platinum-clad cellphones that cost upwards of $19,000 and is trying to horn in on Vertu's market of celebrities and ostentatious noveau riche who can afford to leave a phone that costly in the back of a cab.
