What happens when two British luxury brands make a baby? In the case of phone maker Vertu and automaker Bentley, the pair have just announced that they are working on “Vertu for Bentley” phones — with the first one due in October, followed by four more models over the course of the five-year exclusive partnership (sorry, no more love for Ferrari). There’s little info on what to expect here at the moment; all we know is that these special edition devices — presumably running on Android with nice specs à la Signature Touch — will offer exclusive Bentley content to their users, and that they “will be jointly designed by the Vertu and Bentley design teams, based on a relationship that goes far deeper than the utilisation of materials and cues on design.” Jeez, get a room, you two.
