Vertu applies MIM technology in luxury mobile phone range

March 2, 2007

000340Vertu, a manufacturer of handcrafted mobile phones for the luxury market, has used MIM technology in its Indianapolis Limited Edition Vertu Ascent phone as part of its Vertu Racetrack Legends Series.

Made in the UK, the Indianapolis Limited Edition phone is the newest addition to the world’s toughest line of phones and combines metal injection moulding techniques and laser engraving with precise hand lacquering to fashion the bezel nose of the phone.

Only 1,000 models of the Indianapolis Limited Edition will be made. A black, 3D carbon image leather encases a pure sapphire crystal face, and each key is supported by two jewelled ruby bearings.

000341Every key is micro-perforated by laser, with over 575 holes drilled in a single keypad to create the effect of light shining through solid steel.

The etched bezel nose is finished with black enamel to call to mind a classic radiator grill, and the phones feature the ‘Indianapolis’ name and a rendering of the 2.5-mile IMS oval and 2.605-mile road course etched by laser on the back.
