BBC’s Sherlock Holmes show, all about the Vertu Constellation Quest [warning, episode 1 spoilers]

When I’m buried with revision, I like to have some white noise in the background. Preferably melodical music or a random tv programme. So it was quite coincidental that I got this tip about a Vertu handset appearing on BBC’s Sherlock whilst I left it playing in the background when going over the Limbic System. I didn’t get the story as I wasn’t watching it, but it seems like the whole 90 minute show was all about the Vertu phone or at least the data that was secured in it.

The handset it appeared to be owned by Sherlock Holme’s antagonist. Whatshername.

This is a modern day take on Sherlock holmes btw, if you’re wondering why they have mobilephones.

Here’s the Vertu Constellation Quest, locked in a case with a trap.

It’s passcode locked. I didn’t follow the story but Holmes xrayed it to find it had some form of explosives if someone tried to pry open the phone to get the data out. Perhaps they should have bought those $200 USB cables and transferred to PC 😛

In the end it is unlocked.

The Vertu becomes property of the British Goverment and has to be returned.

But the phone is so nice that Sherlock asks Watson if he can have it.

The phone sherlock himself uses? The damn iThing.

Cheers Ammad for the tip!
