Vertu Constellation Quest 'coming soon,' finally puts QWERTY in your Hermès handbag

Chris Ziegler

What's been missing from Vertu's lineup so far? Okay, yes, a touchscreen model -- touché -- but what we were really getting at was a version with a full QWERTY keyboard. The company has started sending out emails teasing a new Constellation Quest model, and while you can't make much either from the included picture or from the Flash-based teaser site you're directed to, it's pretty obvious there's QWERTY involved -- perfect for texting in your bids to Christie's, agreeing to a sale price for your summer home in the Hamptons over email, or letting Jeeves know to have the jet fueled and ready while you're still in the back of the Roller some 45 minutes away. Needless to say, we're confident it'll carry on the Vertu tradition of being overpriced and under-capable, but let's be honest: does a billionaire have the time to figure out how to use a smartphone anyhow?
