Vertu Constellation, Pink Galaxy S III and more… [Top Tech Stories 24/09/12]
Vertu Constellation cometh
Luxury brand Vertu has released two new smartphone ranges, the Constellation Neon and Constellation Blue. The Neon is based on the Nokia C7 while the Blue is built around the Nokia E6, sculpted with fashion brand Italia Independent. We love a taste of the good life, but if you’re going to throw money at a mobile phone, you’d hope it would be running something more advanced than the Nokia Belle OS.
LG Tone+ headset
Sure, Apple may have improved its free in-ears headphones with the EarPods, but LG has taken it a step further with the Tone+ headset, due to hit store shelves next month. This Bluetooth powered, VoLTE compatible beauty offers a pro grade codec for top audio performance, vibrates when you’re called, reads out your texts, has 500 hours standby, and can pair to two devices at once.
Hennessey 1226bhp Cadillac CTS-V
When performance tuners Hennessey tinkered with the already powerful Cadillac CTS-V to give it a whopping 1226bhp, our attention was piqued. The 7L V8 engine makes short work of a 0-62mph time in just 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 242mph. Just don’t expect to have change left to pay that speeding ticket after you’ve refilled the tank.
Pink Samsung Galaxy S3 incoming
If you’ve been holding out on buying a Samsung Galaxy S3 because it just wasn’t pink enough, you’re in luck – Sammy’s releasing this rosy-hued model. However, if you really want to rock the Legally Blonde look, you’ll have to go to Korea to pick one up – assuming a UAE release isn’t announced soon.
