You Just Got The New iPhone 6? You Aren’t Bentley Material

Wes grew up around cars at the family business. He makes no attempt to hide his love of early 90s GM products, and still repents selling his sweet '94 Pontiac Sunbird a few years back.

Over the past several years, I’ve been known to be a classic iPhone hater. I guess I just don’t get the cult following. There are several other phones on the market that are just as good or better. But maybe I’m just that way – I never liked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a kid either. It’s just so stupid… Anyway, back to the iPhone thing. I suddenly don’t care about that anymore. Because I just found out about Vertu – which I became aware of with the announcement of their new Vertu for Bentley smartphone.

For a mere $17,100, you can have “the Bentley of smartphones.” One catch – for that exorbitant amount of money, you get nothing you can’t get from one of the other top smartphones on the market. Kind of like Bentley vehicles. Sure they are fancy, but so what?

So you can drive your fancy car and text from your fancy phone. That’s right – text AND drive. The “regular people” laws don’t apply to you anyway, right? Suddenly, smug Chevy Volt owners don’t seem so bad.

Before this goes too far, let’s look at the specs. Maybe there is something else it brings to the table. Let’s see, it has a 4.7-inch screen, 64 Gb memory, 13-megapixel camera. Nope, it’s just a fucking smartphone that costs 17 grand. At least it has a diamond-stitched calfskin leather exterior. Because that’s essential.

There’s also this commercial of a guy calling his girl to take a picture of him in front of the Bentley – after walking through a field. What is happening in the world?
