An elite smart phone for the sophisticated technophile

Have someone on your holiday list who is looking for a little more exclusivity when it comes to their gadgets? Ultra-luxe cell-phone maker, Vertu, recently celebrated the launch of its very first smartphone, the Vertu Constellation Quest, with a star-studded guest list of luminaries including Blake Lively, Adrian Grenier and Seal.

The new phone features a crystal keypad and screen – meaning it’s exceptionally scratchproof – and stainless steel casing with black leather. Users are given an email address, and each phone is equipped with enhanced services, including: Vertu Concierge (connects you to a lifestyle manager via a dedicated key on the phone), Vertu Select (a tailored news feed), and Vertu City Brief (a digest of essential info upon arrival to a new destination).

$7,900, available at Vertu
